Event description
Calmer Con: A Sensory Friendly Comic Book & Pop Culture Convention for neurodiverse individuals and families, like those with Autism or ADHD

About this Event

Calmer Con is an authentic Comic Book & Pop Culture convention modified to be more Sensory Friendly for neurodiverse individuals, like those with Autism or ADHD, and anyone else who has sensory processing concerns. This greatly lessens the chance of attendees becoming over stimulated while enjoying the event with their families. We are holding the convention at the Leicester Massachusetts Campus of Becker College in two separate, four hour blocks to allow us to maintain a sensory friendly environment while giving twice as many people the chance to attend.

Calmer Con includes many of the activities found at standard comic book conventions, such as comic book & toy vendors, interactions with superhero and science fiction characters, comic book creators, and some contests and giveaways, all presented in a way that helps control overcrowding and noise levels. It also includes many activities not typically found at other conventions, such as an art area, Jedi Training, storytelling seminars, face painting, our Superhero Academy, and a brick building area. Perhaps most importantly, we provide a Sensory Reduced quiet area specifically to allow overwhelmed attendees the opportunity to relax and reset before rejoining the fun.
