Event description

Description

Genericon is a weekend-long, general convention run by the students of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. We feature a wide variety of attractions that run the gamut of geeky hobbies, including science fiction, gaming of all forms, and anime. Our events include panels by guest speakers, video gaming tournaments, role-playing games of both the pen-and-paper and live-action variety, and hours of showings of both science fiction classics and modern anime fresh from Japan. The convention starts at 6 PM on Friday (2/22) and ends at 6 PM the following Sunday (2/24). The convention will close each night at 1 AM and open at 8 AM the next day. All attendees must be off of RPI property while the convention is closed during those hours. Non-preregistration and non-group tickets will be sold on-site during the convention. Visit genericon.org for more information or options to get free badges by volunteering or running a panel.
