October 2 — Mississippi Toy Con — Brandon, Mississippi

For far too long, Mississippi toy collectors have wandered the wasteland of rummage sales and scoured the caverns of antique shops clutching playworn blackwalls, A.R.A.H. torsos, and squishy, hollow MOTU heads. The dream of an event to touch and feel the objects of our childhood only existed in distant lands.

Collectors, wander no more! Mississippi has its toy show! MSToyCon!

October 1-3 — Tennessee Game Days Fall VI — Franklin, Tennessee

In 2014, in addition to our annual spring event, we started a one day fall event to coincide with Extra Life – a charity fundraiser that benefits the Children’s Miracle Network and furthers the work of local children’s hospitals. That event soon grew to a 24 hour gaming marathon and then to a larger, three day event. This year it is growing again as we pivot – moving our traditional spring event to the fall due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.
