General

  • What is the history behind Galactic Con?

    Growing up we went to many conventions and larger entertainment shows. Once we started a family we realized we had been “priced out” of most fan shows and could no longer afford to attend them. We decided to try running our first show in Delaware in 2015 with the hope of bringing an exciting, family friendly event to Middletown, and breaking even in the process. It was a really fun, great time, and the feedback convinced us to keep at it!

  • Is it family friendly?

    Absolutely. Bring the whole family!

  • I’ve never been to a Comic Con before, what can I expect?

    You are the customer we are looking for! We are a great first time con. We aren’t too big so you won’t ever feel the overwhelming effect of a large show. You can expect to see original art, lots of comic book vendors who can help you find a book to read, and some great costuming. Part of the experience is going booth to booth and talking with the artists and vendors one to one. You will get the most out of your day just connecting with other other fans in the pop culture community. Being a smaller show, you can get a more intimate experience and can commission art very easily.

  • How long will it take to walk your convention?

    This is a question we hear often, but it is hard to provide an answer that applies to everyone. Some people can breeze through in an hour. Others hang out all day. Our events average 30 vendors and 30 artists, which is considered a smaller show. So while you might be able to see all the exhibitors quickly, other events and cosplayers may encourage fans to hang around longer.

  • Why don’t you have celebrities?

    In order to keep our costs low we have chosen to not pursue celebrity headliners.
    There are already a lot of amazing conventions where you can see top talent and we are not attempting to complete with the “big” shows.

  • How is Galactic Con different than other conventions?

    #1 – we’re affordable. We bring cosplay, artists and great comic vendors at a price that allows you to bring your whole family.

  • What is Galactic Con?

    A  family run comic con. My husband and I run the show only with help from family and friends. We keep our costs low and pass on our savings to the vendors, artists and fans.
