This is the Rockford Game Convention you are looking for!



~~ FUTURE DATES are posted in the FAQ page ~~

Welcome to Rock-Con Game Convention! We want to thank all of you who joined us at the new location in 2017. The Tebala Event Center worked well last year and we're looking forward to another great convention there. The Rockford convention, by any name, as you know by now, features historical and fantasy miniature gaming, collectible miniatures, role-playing, board gaming, and other events that cover the entire spectrum of adventure gaming.


NavCon started as a Milwaukee based naval game convention and joined the convention in 2016. Our staff continues to be excited to join with staff, judges, vendors and attendees


from another local and well loved convention. NAVCON games will continue to have dedicated floor space at the convention.


The ROCK-CON Staff and Minions look forward to welcoming you back this year!!
