SPRINGCON is less than a week away, and here is some important information about it.
+ + + + + Where is it? + + + + +
MN State Fairgrounds Grandstand
1265 Snelling Ave, St Paul, MN 55108
The AOS and 40k GT are on the SECOND FLOOR of the Grandstand
+ + + + + Where should I park? + + + + +
There is a TON of FREE parking! Available parking is well-marked throughout the MN State Fairgrounds. On-street parking fills up fast but there are 2 huge lots practically on top of the Grandstand: Southwest of the Grandstand, north of the Coliseum (where the Midway usually is at the Fair) The new Fox Lot, where Heritage Square used to stand (northwest of the Grandstand) It’s always a good idea to have a back-up parking spot in mind, just in case “Plan A” is full when you arrive. Please refer to this MAP ( http://www.mnstatefair.org/interactive/maps/ )
+ + + + + Will there be food? + + + + +
YES! Smokey Joe’s will, once again, provide their outstanding board of fare for Fall ComiCon attendees! Located just outside the Education Building, a few steps west of the main entrance, you’ll have no trouble finding them…just follow your nose! You’ll find fresh-grilled goodies, salads, and ice cold drinks! Picnic tables are available for convenient seating outside and we’ll have benches just inside the entrance if the weather turns.
NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
No smoking is allowed at any Convention event at any time or in any location. You are welcome to step outside to smoke in designated smoking areas, but please be considerate of others when you do. This policy is in place not only for the comfort of attendees but also to comply with city ordinances prohibiting smoking at public events. Please comply with this policy; noncompliance may result in being ejected from the convention.
+ + + + + Are there ATMs available? + + + + +
YES! There will be an ATM machine available at the Main Entrance.
Dress in Layers, Bring an Umbrella – It’s May in Minnesota! Will it rain? Maybe. Will it be tropical jungle heat and humidity? Maybe.
