Despite its name, the Hartford Comic Con doesn't just celebrate comics—it dives headfirst into the multiverse of pop culture. The two-day event brings together fans and artists from film and TV, gaming, comics, and genre literature for a chance to learn and revel in fandom at the same time.
Special guests—from celebrity stars of sci-fi and fantasy TV and film to the artists of beloved comic book runs—headline the convention. Guest artists from a range of titles and nearly 60 independent artists in the Artist Alley are also on hand to show off their ink-based works.
Celebrities from both of those worlds participate in
panel discussions. The Comic Con is also interactive: a cosplay contest gives visitors a chance to show off their creativity and attention to detail, while kid-friendly workshops let little ones enjoy arts and crafts.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.

Ensconced by dense woodlands, The Golf Club at McKinney's 18-hole layout undulates through a rural landscape that feels far away from the hustle and bustle of civilization. The combination of tree-lined fairways, water hazards, hills, and considerable length—the course measures 6,807 yards from the tips—make the par 72 layout a real challenge for golfers of all abilities. To help level the playing field, the Club offers a grass-tee driving range and two greens, one dedicated to putting practice and the other to chipping.
