Genghis Con’s greatest strength has always been our wide spectrum of great exhibitors. From seasoned professionals that have been in the game for decades to fierce rookies exhibiting their first show, we curate our roster to bring together the best possible convention we can for everyone.

Genghis Con’s priority is celebrating the independent, DIY ethic with a focus on the art and language of comics and visual storytelling. Returning for a second year to the convention’s offerings is Weird Realms’ DIY Game Room, giving attendees a place to learn about and play independent tabletop RPGs, board games and meet the local game developers working right here in the region.

Genghis Con 2019 is on Sunday, December 1st from 2pm to 7pm at The Lake Erie Building at 13000 Athens in Lakewood, Ohio. The show is FREE, family friendly and open to the public!
