The CombatCon Experience


“I want to do that!”

That’s how one of our founders felt, as he watched a rapier and dagger demonstration at his first Renaissance Festival. Not only was he immediately hooked, but the idea for the CombatCon Experience was born — a chance for anyone to do something wild, fun, and out of the ordinary. An experience to spark a passion.

The CombatCon Experience is a free, open-access, all-ages hall of wonders designed to give you a multitude of interactive thematic activities hosted by various combat-enthused groups. At the Experience, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Handle historical replicas of swords and other weapons
  • Try on armor that would have been worn by actual knights
  • Listen to music and try your hand at a game of jugger in the Wasteland area
  • Beat your friends with boffer weapons in a LARP-style Game
  • Watch demonstrations of skill, bravery, and bravado with various weapons
  • Learn a new roleplaying game from a virtuoso table-top Game Master
  • Hear the crack of expertly wielded whips, or the sizzle of electrifying Shock Knives

Shop for goods and wares from our fabulous Vendors!
