It might not be quite grammatically correct, but this question nicely expresses the philosophy of our upcoming 2nd annual celebration of popular culture, coming August 12th and 13th. Last year we held a comic con, focused primarily on the Summer Reading Program superhero and comic book theme. In 2016, we are expanding to something we are calling RidgeCon, which will encompass a wide range of fandoms, from youngsters obsessed with Disney princesses to older adults who can’t get enough of Downton Abbey. And of course, there will still be plenty for followers of the big pop culture phenomena of the summer, from X-Men, Star Trek and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies to the release of the long-awaited new Harry Potter novel.
Activities during RidgeCon will include cosplay, face painting, drawing workshops, gaming, themed trivia and scavenger hunts, green screen photo ops, live entertainment, visits from costumed characters, choose-your-own-adventure scenarios and even a special Friday evening event for adult fans of All Things British.
Businesses and individuals interested in purchasing a vendor table, program book ad or event sponsorship should visit ridgefieldlibrary.org or call John Casiello at 203-438-2282 x11006
So, whatever you are a fan of, we hope to see you in August – in costume or not!
