Whether you’re in the mood for a party, a par-tay, an affair, a ball, a bash, a blowout, a to-do, a function, a gala, or a cannibalistic blood orgy, Con on the Cob has you covered. Here’s a sampling of what’s in store:
The Welcome to Coblympus Get-To-Know-Everyone Party (All Ages)
Join our staff, guests, and other fancy peeps in a toast to whatever it is you want to toast (maybe toast itself). Munch some gourmet vittles and shmooze with the crust. Dress in your shabbiest finery and enjoy the faux-chic ambiance. It’s to die for (not literally).
Features of this shindig include a welcoming speech by Con on the Cob founder Andy Hopp (that’s me), a tour of the digs, and all sorts of fun jazz.
Thursday 8pm in the GLOOM ROOM
The Drink & Draw (Wretch & Sketch) (21+)
The Fancy-Schmancy thing kind of devolves into this. The room generally splits into two peaceful factions: drunk people with sketch books and drunk people with games. Some people are not drunk.
Thursday 10pm in the Con Suite
TOGA! TOGA! TOGA!
Geek Watch One does thing up! Togas are optional but encouraged. There will be dancing, drinking, shenanigans, a brownie baking competition (bring some brownies to enter), and more!
Friday 9pm in the GLOOM ROOM
Santa’s Pajama Party (Children of the Cob)
The actual, for realsies, honest-to-goodness Santa Claus will be hosting this incredible party for the youngsters. Wear your jammies and bring your favorite stuffy. Santa will be telling stories, sharing pizza, and playing games with the chillunz.
Friday 7pm in the Children of the Cob Room
The Children of the Cob Toga Party(Children of the Cob)
This party has it all. Everything. Nothing is left out (except for stuff that isn’t a magic show, hot dogs, games, a pinata, and other fun things for kids to do). Togas are encouraged (you know, to get into the spirit of the thing).
Saturday 12pm in the Children of the Cob Room
Kids in Costumes (All Ages)
This rambling good time includes trick and/or treating throughout the entire con, a kids’ costume contest, and other assorted bits of tid. Wear a costume if you have one. Prizes will be awarded and fun will be had.
Saturday 4:30pm in the Children of the Cob Room
Barfleet Away Mission (21+)
Our friends from Barfleet and the U.B.S. Casual are hosting this bad ass rave style madhouse. Dress in your snazziest explorer duds and dance, dance, dance the night away. If dancing isn’t your thing there’ll be other stuff too, like hillbilly leg wrestling (hosted by our pals at Gutbusting Games), drawing on people with Sharpies, obeying the rules, and brushing your teeth after every meal.
Saturday 9pm in the GLOOM ROOM
Savage Saturday Night Bar & Chill (21+)
A CotC tradition from way back in the day, Sean Fannon and the awesome monkey-faced sock jockeys from the Dirty Dirty Grill and Sauce Gang heap upon us a dose of freshly grilled hot imaginary dogs and a bunch of assorted beverages. There’s ridiculous conversation, Sean’s butt (invariably, inevitably, and regrettably), music, laughter, and good clean family fan (provided your family is a horde of depraved lunatics).
Saturday 9pm in Room 307
The Masquerave (All Ages)
Saturday night is the night for the ALL AGES masquerade party and costume contest. It all gets started around 7pm. The costume contest (for adults and chillunz) begins around 7:30. Afterwards, things get funky with dancing, socializing, and possibly a bit of Extreme Twister!
Saturday 7pm in the Con Suite.

Saturday 10am in the GLOOM ROOM
An interactive and riotous tea party hosted by Gandersnitch the goblin. As we attempt to recreate a proper Victorian Tea, by the proper rules and guidelines, the addition of goblin magic and rampant misinterpretations creates an experience never to be forgotten. Lasts 30 to 45 minutes, depending on attendance. Thankfully, no actual tea is served, but each audience member does receive several goblin party favors to keep.
Saturday 2 pm in the Children of the Cob room.
Let us know if you are interested in hosting a party in your hotel room.
