A Letter to our Zappers

Zapp Girl 2017
Greetings, Zappers!

We’ve had three great years of Fresno’s favorite fan-run convention and we’re busy focusing on the bringing another great one to town. However, we’ve decided that we’re going to need until 2018 to make it the biggest and best one yet.

We know, that’s sad news to a lot of you. There’s just four main people that spend all year organizing ZappCon. We want to make sure each and every one is the best nerdy entertainment you can find in the Valley. We came out of the gate swinging in 2014 and each year we bring in more great gaming, how-to panels, musical guests, cosplay awesomeness and the best vendors around.

For 2017, we’ll continue our community events that have become popular, including working with the Fresno County Library’s summer experiences, organizing gaming events, and working with other local businesses. We’re also putting together a great 1-day experience that will combine our extremely popular annual scavenger hunt and the best parts of ZappCon.

It takes a lot of time and money to put on a professional level convention. The four board members love putting this together and working with the community volunteers who’ve made the ZappCon the quality experience you’re used to having.

Look for ZappCon community events throughout this year to continue to gather with your favorite nerds in the Valley.

Then watch out for a bigger and better ZappCon in 2018. Look for cosplay done better than before. Watch for a video game experience that continues to grow. Get ready for even more great board gaming and role playing. And get ready to share your skills or learn new ones when it comes to making music, creating art or swinging a sword.

We love ya’, Central Valley. We’ll do right by ya’.

    I’m sorry to hear this. Zappcon is just about the only con I can make.

  • Stephanie says:

    Thank you for the information. I appreciate the time and thought you have put into this letter. I look forward to next year. Good luck, and keep on geekin’.

  • it is cause this Con is so damn expensive. I really would like to do something for my channel here but I never have the money to go at all.

  • ThorTV says:

    I guess I’m not the only one taking 2017 off. I’ll see you next year.

  • Dominic says:

    If you need more members on the board and need people to get more involved im willing to help in any way possible

  • Brian says:

    I don’t think 4 people is enough to organize an event of your size. You might want to consider adding additional members to your board. Just a suggestion. Looking forward to your con in 2018!
