Greatness starts with an excellent team.
Louisiana Retro Con was started in the small town of Houma, Louisiana in September of 2022. It all started in a small gym in Oakshire subdivision. The first show was only a four-hour test run event, and was never expected to expand in such a positive way.
Just a few months later at our next show, Louisiana Retro Con Winter 2023 (January 21, 2023), was our biggest and most successful event to date, with double the vendors, the addition of 3 extra hours to the event time, as well as the inclusion of on-site food trucks. Due to the loving outreach and continued high demand, LRC conventions are now permanently hosted bi-annually (twice per year).
The following show, Louisiana Retro Con Fall 2023 (September 9th, 2023), was our biggest and most ambitious event yet. Taking place in the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium, we united our fandom larger than ever before. hosting over 80+ vendors, exhibitors and special guests, there was something for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
The next event will be Louisiana Retro Con Spring 2024, where a new chapter begins as we return back to our new home, the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium. This will be our first-ever two day event, taking place on March 2nd and 3rd.
Our first and foremost goal for each convention is to provide a safe place for families and patrons of all ages to have affordable fun. We hope that our events will create new friendships and inclusivity opportunities to everyone.
