Visioncon returns Feb. 23-25

Visioncon returns with a member of the “Starship Troopers,” more guests and activities in tow for its annual convention Feb. 23-25 at the Branson Convention Center.

For more than 25 years, Visioncon has been Missouri's premier comic con, science fiction, fantasy, live action, role playing, cosplay and gaming convention. More than 4,000 people attended the 2017 convention in Branson with a common goal – have fun and raise money for local charities. As a nonprofit organization, Visioncon is pleased to continue its tradition of giving back each year, and the 2018 charity is Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, Missouri.

Visioncon guests this year include Casper Van Dien (“Starship Troopers,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “CONMAN”), Keegan Connor Tracy (“Once Upon a Time” and “The Magicians”), and voice actor Andy Field (“Five Nights at Freddy's”). To see the full guest list and schedule visit our website at www.visioncon.net

Other activities include hands-on workshops for props and costuming as well as costume contests and children’s programing. Padawans, prepare for an introduction class on light sabers, a Pokemon Hunt and more! As always, children 12 and under are admitted free of charge and there's a feeling of community in every corner of this family-friendly event. Join Visioncon at the Branson Convention Center Feb. 23-25.
