Rhode Island Comic Con 2017
November 10, 2017 - November 12, 2017
During the weekend of November 10th-12th the Rhode Island Convention Center and the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island hosted the annual Rhode Island Comic Con. The show is nicknamed the “Biggest show in the smallest state”, which is a very fitting nickname for this particular convention. There were a number of actors from various genres such as Star Wars, Star Trek, The Walking Dead, Marvel, Stranger Things, Gotham, and many more. Fans were able to shop the numerous vendors in the Rhode Island Convention Center and in the areas surrounding the Arena in the Dunkin Donuts Center. There were a lot of different booths to browse through and items to be purchased.
The actors located in both the Convention Center and the floor of the arena with the Photo Ops taking place just outside of the arena floor.
The world of cosplay was well represented with numerous of attendees dressed up as their favorite characters. The local costume groups for the 501st, Legion Legion, Ghostbusters, V, Pirates, etc were on hand to help entertain the crowd. The prop company Feature Presentation was on hand as well with three displays.
Overall the convention was a very good time Friday was a great opening afternoon with a good sized crowd. Saturday was the busiest day with lots of fans coming through the Arena and Convention Center. We saw a lot of great vendors, guests, and costumes/cosplayers.
Dates for next year (2018) have already been announced. The show will take place November 2nd – 4th at the Rhode Island Convention Center and its neighbor the Dunkin Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
