The comic and gaming convention iMagicon will be coming back to Minot, North Dakota April 27-29 at the Holiday Inn-Riverside Convention Center in Minot.

A fairly new event to come to the Magic City, the convention’s name is a combination of words “imagine,” “magic”and “convention.” The event’s creators write of the significance of the moniker on the website, stating, “2015 was just a start and our imaginations are the limit.”

The convention will have a variety of activities and events to attend, from cosplay and LARP (live action role-playing) competitions to both tabletop (i.e. Dungeons and Dragons; Pokémon) and video gaming (i.e. Super Smash Bros.) competitions throughout the weekend. Souvenir and various gaming shopping is also part of the convention.

As in years past, iMagicon is bringing in nationally renowned personalities for engaging talks and panel discussions. This is where attendees can ask questions to creators and individuals that have added their touch to the video game/comic/movie culture. This year’s panel sounds especially awesome. Among the panel members will be Colin Cantwell, the man behind many of the vehicles from the original Star Wars trilogy, the Millennium Falcon and TIE fighter perhaps the most notable.

Are you a fan of conspiracy theories and monsters lurking in the woods? iMagicon 2018 has you covered with special guest Ken Gerhard. Gerhard has traveled the country hunting such legends as Mothman, Bigfoot and others. He will be giving talks on his journeys throughout the convention weekend.

Like most things, there is a cost associated with attending iMagicon. There is still time to get a 3-day pass for $30, or you could splurge a bit and pay $100 for a Premier pass, which will allow you access to many parts of events normal passes will not allow. Tickets at the door will also be available for $20 per day.

The hours of the convention are as follows:

Friday, April 27: 11 a.m.-12 a.m.

Saturday, April 28: 11 a.m.-12 a.m.

Sunday, April 29: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
