SwampCon is a multi-genre convention for all ages hosted at the University of Florida and held in the Student Reitz Union. For four years, University of Florida students, representing several student organizations, organized the annual convention. SwampCon is a free convention featuring a combination of Anime, Gaming, and Sci-Fi themed events. This year, the sixth year, SwampCon and its staff will continue to provide exceptional entertainment for fans and first-time attendees alike.
First started in 2011 by the Gator Anime Club, UF Delta Nu Delta Tabletop Gaming Club, and Science Fiction Consortium, SwampCon has tripled its attendance over the years. Every year, SwampCon has strived to grow and evolve its programming to better provide a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for all of its attendees.
In past years, we’ve had to reorganize the event around the Reitz Union construction and renovation, but this year we are able to utilize all of the new space for a whole new convention experience! We hope to reflect our new theme, SwampCon: Frontier, in the usage of this available space and in our convention.
