Meme Central

Did you really think we could go a DerpyCon without memes? After it’s record breaking performance in 2019 (and its move to online in 2020), DerpyCon’s world-famous Meme Central is back with non-stop memes that you won’t be able to escape (believe us… we’ve tried).

Panels & Workshops

Attendee-run panels and workshops are the backbone of any convention. We have an awesome line-up of fan presented panels & workshops throughout the weekend, from veterans & DerpyCon rookies alike. You’ll find panels putting your favorite shows to the test, sharing history of important films, diving deep into the comics of new & old, and just having a grand old time laughing at who knows what.

If you’d like to host a panel at DerpyCon, our Panel Applications are Available Here.

Tabletop Gaming

Give a stop by our Tabletop Room, where you’ll find board games to play, space for opening card gaming, some Dungeons & Dragons-themed playthroughs, Magic The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh TCG gaming meetups, Catan qualifiers, and much more.

Video Gaming

Up-Down-A-Down-B-B-B… is that the cheat code right? Our Video Gaming Hall, presented by A Video Game Con (AVGC) and Save Point, brings you a collection of retro consoles and arcade cabinets to fulfill all of your wildest wishes! Stop by the room to button smash your way to the next level, eat up some ghosts, or shoot down those aliens enroute to some sweet sweet gold coins.
