Nittany Con announces new location for 2016
STATE COLLEGE – Nittany Con, central Pennsylvania’s premier family-friendly comic book convention, will be held at a new location for 2016. After three successful years in Milesburg, the event has grown beyond its former venue and now will be headquartered at the Ramada State College Hotel and Conference Center, 1450 S. Atherton St.
Nittany Con will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 25 and will feature a cosplay contest, comics from the 1940s to present and exhibitors with toys, collectibles, statues and original artwork. Comic book illustrators and creators from Marvel, D.C. Comics and independent studios also will meet with fans to share their work.
Founded in 2013 by Ken Feduniewicz, a Marvel comic book artist and resident of Huntingdon, Nittany Con is an opportunity for artists and fans from the central Pennsylvania region and beyond to come together in celebration of their love of comic books, superheroes and science fiction. Although Feduniewicz passed in 2015, it was his wish that Nittany Con continue. This year’s con features a silent auction in his memory, with proceeds going to his estate.
“We’re excited about the location and believe it will allow us to reach an even larger audience than in past years,” Jason Lenox, Nittany Con co-director and illustrator, said. “Nittany Con has expanded beyond our original expectations and we’re happy to see that the Central Pennsylvania region is embracing us.”
