What is KidCon?

The kid-centric event for ages 0 - 100

KidCon is the ultimate event for kids and families. Designed for kids, and kids at heart, we take our toys and games seriously. During the event, attendees will be able to shop, learn and play at our unforgettable event. Interactive areas include slime making, obstacle courses, coding and more. Check out our Kid Zones in the city nearest you to see what will be in store for your family at KidCon.

Whether you are 3 years old or 103 years old there will be something to keep you occupied at KidCon. Each event is different so don’t miss out on the KidCon nearest you. The event was designed Parent & Co. which is the production company that brought you MommyCon. KidCon was our answer to keeping our kids busy, engaged and learning while having fun.
