Twin Cities Con's Story

Twin Cities Con is a pop culture, media, and comic book convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota. TCC was created by Ben Penrod, founder of comic cons in over ten cities, including Awesome Con in Washington, DC. Ben has been producing fan events for over ten years, and knew that the Twin Cities area would be the perfect location for a new comic con. TCC is produced by Ben's company Nerd Street, which also organizes Des Moines Con,Central Florida Comic Con, Annapolis Comic-Con, Southern Maryland Comic-Con, Sugoi Expo, and co-promotes the Alaska ComiCon.
