MeggaXP 2016 at the Commonwealth Commerce Center
September 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Meggacon II (2016) is the sequel to the biggest thing to hit Jackson geekdom in over a generation! Last year over 2,000 people filled the 3 rooms we had at the Commonwealth Commerce Center, and this year we have taken over the ENTIRE BUILDING! That’s right – this year we have FOUR floors, and SIXTEEN rooms filled with games, art, comics, guests, and so much more!
Get your tickets at www.meggacon.com/tickets starting May 1st!
As the Meggacon Hype Train continues to roll out, we will update this event page with newly released content….as for right now, though – this is what you have to look forward to:
Celebrity Guests – Guests announced who are taking a part of Meggacon 2016 so far:
Arryn Zech – from Rooster Teeth’s RWBY & Red Vs. Blue
Krystal Laporte – from Dragonball Z, Nobunaga the Fool, Log Horizon, Beyond the Boundary and more!
Efren Ramirez – Best known as Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite, Efren has also appeared in Eastbound and Down, Crank 1 & 2, Employee of the Month, and more!
Larry Thomas – “The Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld! One of the most ICONIC characters from the 90’s will be on hand to sign autographed photos and soup ladles!

Evan Shaner – Jackson’s own Evan Shaner comes home to take part in the comic-con in his hometown! Evan has worked for both DC AND Marvel Comics, and is currently involved in Future Quest #1!
Artist Alley – we have assembled an artist alley bigger and better than last year. Stay tuned as we add the links to each and every artist that will be setting up shop at Meggacon!
Vendors Galore – Similarly to the artist alley, we have assembled an amazing group of vendors who will be setting up shop at Meggacon 2!
Comix Zone – What’s this??? An entire BALLROOM filled with nothing but comics and vintage toys for your shopping pleasure?? One of the few complaints we heard last year was the lack of comic related merch and guests – it’s safe to say we have that covered this year.
Videogame Tournaments – One of the biggest attractions last year was our Super Smash Bros. tournament, but we featured 3 other major videogame tournaments – and we have even more coming your way this year!!
Tabletop Events – from demoing and open gaming to fully structured tournmants – we will have several large areas dedicated to everything from Magic the Gathering and Ticket to Ride to Dungeons and Dragons and Pokemon! If it’s played on a table, there’s a good chance it will be at Meggacon!
Cosplay Contests & Special Guests- Saturday will be the adults / teenage cosplay contest, and Sunday will be the kids costume contest! We also will have SEVERAL featured cosplayers in attendance, whether at a table or just roaming around the con! Want your cosplay featured on our website?
