PentaCon 2016 is two months away! Can you believe it?
First, a recap: PentaCon 2016 takes place at the “MCM Elegante Hotel & Suites” in Dallas, TX on July 23rd and 24th, 2016. It’s entirely run by Pentaholics, and it’s the first ever convention in the PTX fandom. To help raise funds for the event, we have a Merch Store on our website. There are now a total of ELEVEN exclusive shirt designs, available in a variety of formats (t-shirts, hoodies, etc.) and a variety of sizes (youth and XL+). To make your search easier, we’ve revamped our store so that it’s easier than ever to find the merch you’re looking for! So head on over to the PentaCon 2016 Merch Store and help #SupportPentaCon2016 with a purchase!
As PentaCon 2016 approaches, we want to give you a one stop shop to view all the necessary information for the event. What time do the events start? What activities will be happening? What do I need to bring with me to PentaCon? All those questions and more are answered on our new Program page on the website.

Help support PentaCon 2016 by becoming a sponsor! Previous donations and ticket sales went to providing the venue and food, which is now almost covered thanks to you all! Now, we are looking into adding even more awesome activities! Sponsors will have their name listed on the program and on the special sponsor page on our website. All funds raised will be used to produce a fantastic PentaCon 2016!
There are two sponsorship options. You can be a general sponsor and we will determine which activity to use the funds for, or you can sponsor a specific item which means you are directly responsible for helping to make it happen! Visit the Sponsor Us page on our website to see a list of the general sponsorship levels, as well as all of the specific sponsorships available. Sponsorships are purchased through our Merch Store, or you can click on the titles on the Sponsor Us page to purchase any of the sponsorships you’d like to help with. Thank you for helping us making this event one to remember!

All submissions will then be given away or sold in support of PentaCon. The designs must be family-friendly, with nothing inappropriate, harmful or offensive. Photos are allowed at the event, so please do not submit anything that you would not like to be photographed or seen on social media. We can’t wait to see your art on display!
