Neopets Takes Center Stage at Conventions Across the Globe This October

Neopets goes worldwide! This month we’re teaming up with three fantastic conventions—RetroGameCon, New York Comic Con, and Gamescom Asia! Featuring everything from charity auctions and scavenger hunts to real-life Faerie Quests, this month is shaping up to be busier than the Hall of Heroes during the Altador Cup!

RetroGameCon - October 7th–8th, Syracuse, NY

We're going all out at RetroGameCon, Syracuse's ultimate video game extravaganza, happening on October 7th and 8th. But that's not all – we're also doing it for a good cause!

Here's what's in store for our Neopets fans:

  • Charity Auction: Get ready to bid on exclusive Neopets goodies in a charity auction. The best part? All proceeds go to Extra Life, a gaming charity that helps local Children's Miracle Network hospitals.
  • Neopets Panel: Dive deep into the Neopian lore with our special panel. From a video interview with CEO Dominic Law to Neopets trivia, this is one panel you won’t want to miss!
  • Scavenger Hunt: Participate in a Neopets-themed scavenger hunt found on the back of the RetroGameCon program. If you finish, you might even win an exclusive prize! 
  • Freebies: Every single attendee gets a Neopets lanyard. You heard that right – FREE Neopets swag!

Neopians who want to join the action in person can use the coupon code NEORETRO for $5 off tickets.

New York Comic Con (NYCC) - October 13th–14th

If you're looking for the ultimate Neopets experience, head to New York Comic Con at the Javits Center in New York City on October 13th and 14th. You won't find us at a booth, but you will find that we have some “faerie” exciting plans up our sleeves:

  • Neopian Faeries: Keep your eyes peeled for our Neopian Faeries roaming around the Javits Center. Meet fan favourites like Queen Fyora, Illusen, Jhudora and more! Pose for photos, have a chat, and even take part in a real-life Faerie Quest!
  • Faerie Festival Celebration: Only on October 14th, dress in your Neopian finest for the FIRST-EVER in-person Faerie Festival celebration. We’ll have a professional photographer and videographer on board to capture the moment so that we can broadcast it on our official social channels. You won't want to miss this! More details to come.

Single-day tickets for NYCC on the 13th and 14th are technically sold out, but Neopians interested in attending can check out the event’s official fan-to-fan ticket resale platform.

GamesCom Asia - October 20th–22nd
