Year Round Events

MomoCon is about more than just the yearly convention every spring, we host events all throughout the year!  Since 2006, MomoCon on Tour has been traveling all over the Southeast hosting photoshoots, dances, art events, game days, tournaments and more! MomoCon on Tour is a great way to experience tiny pieces of MomoCon, some of which we were previously never able to do at the convention due to lack of space and manpower.  Some of the photoshoots we host are themed (like the Middle Georgia Massacre), and some events raise money for various charities (like the Pretty in Pink Ball).

Dances

MomoCon is happy to present formal and semi-formal dance events, with previous partners including the Georgia Aquarium, Dragon Con, and various charity organizations!  We have hosted more than a dozen dance/formal ball events over the past 10 years and are currently seeking out new venues to host more in the coming months, stay tuned!

MomoCon’s annual dance will take place January 19th at the Georgia Tech Student Center. Come in your best semi-formal outfits, our cosplay and dance the night away.
