The convention typically offers panels, workshops, and live performances. In past years there have been panels on comic books, video gaming, costuming, and other topics within popular culture. The live performance portion has had live bands, DJs, hypnotists[3], Rocky Horror Picture Show performances, and karaoke.[4]

The video game area consists of both free play and tournaments. Past video game tournaments have consisted of Super Smash Bros., Tekken, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Marvel Vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat[5], and Dragon Ball FighterZ[1] There is also an area dedicated to tabletop games where board games and RPGs are played.[6]
