Title: 

The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library is hosting the first annual Rocket City Nerd Con (RCNC) fan convention in Huntsville on Oct. 24th-25th, 2014 at the Main Branch Library. For this convention, we are seeking to include as many different representations of fan communities as possible. Basically, if people can geek out about it, we want to celebrate it. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Kids 10 yrs and under get in free with adult admission.

The convention will run from 4pm-10pm on Fri, Oct 24th and 9am-5pm on Sat, Oct 25th. A Nerds Night Out event at Yellowhammer Brewery will wrap up the convention.

Tickets are available online and at your closest library branch.
