NEXUS Con – a fair celebrating everything from video games through to zombie extraction runs – will be held at the Coffs Harbour Racecourse tomorrow from 10am to 5pm.

The organisers say there will be something for everyone and the whole community is invited to come and join in the fun!

Nexus Con is a one-day pop culture convention with a range of activities, panels, competitions and special guests. This fun, affordable and inclusive day radiates the friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere for which anime and comic conventions are known.

Now in its fourth year, Nexus Con has grown to be a significant regional event bringing both economic and social and benefits to the Coffs Harbour area. Approximately 1200 people attended Nexus Con last year from across the Mid North Coast and further afield.
