Dear Portsmouth Public Library Mini-Con Fans,
Due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19, Portsmouth Public Library has decided to cancel 2020’s Mini-Con. While we are disappointed at the prospect, the health and safety of individuals is foremost in our minds. Mini-Con draws a crowd of well over 1,000 people in our community and surrounding areas, and we do not wish to expose individuals to the damaging virus. All vendor/exhibitor fees will be refunded and we will continue Mini-Con in 2021. Portsmouth Public Library wishes you good health and encourages social distancing for your safety!
It is a whole day event chock-full of fandom-friendly fun. With onsite food vending, activities for all ages, video gaming tournaments, discussion panels, cosplay contest, live music and more - you can Stay All Day and Play All Day! Be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up-to-date on the latest news and upcoming events!
Admission is free and open to all ages! If you’re a comic book fan you don’t want to miss this event!
