Bald Move Red Wedding
A.Ron and Jim from Bald Move
 at the 2016 "Red Wedding."

Rocket City NerdCon (RCNC) is a celebration of all things nerdy…if your fanaticism for pop culture, comic books, movies, tv, books, games, collectibles, crafting, cosplay, LARPing, etc. borders on obsessively nerdy, this is the place for you! Come meet other people who geek out over similar subjects, and let your inner nerd flag fly.

  • When: Saturday, Nov. 4, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 5, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Where: Downtown Huntsville Library, 915 Monroe Street, Huntsville, AL 35801
  • Tickets: $15 in advance or $20 at the door; children 10 and under are free with ticketed adult (Kids Camp is $5; see details below)

Tickets are good for the whole weekend, and you must have a ticket to enter panel rooms, workshops, and select kids’ events. The library will be open to the public during normal library hours (Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.), but only ticket holders will be allowed in the library outside of normal library hours.

New in 2017!

Adults have the opportunity to let their little ones enjoy Kids Camp during Saturday’s Rocket City NerdCon, so adults can enjoy the convention knowing their kids are in a safe place while enjoying Harry Potter-themed activities. Kids Camp is only on Saturday, Nov. 4, and there is a $5 supply fee.

  • Ages 5-12: 9:30-11:30 a.m.
  • Ages 8-18: 4-6 p.m.

All children must be pre-registered when tickets are purchased. Space is limited to 40 children in each Kids Camp session.
