creation of an iCONic event
Originally envisioned as a one-off event, Rose City Comic Con has come a long way since being conceived and nurtured in a Canby kitchen
A simple idea hatched in his Canby home a little more than five years ago has blossomed into a complex, eclectic and fun destination stop for tens of thousands of people each year.
Its truly a whod a thunk it moment for Ron Brister, who created Rose City Comic Con as a one-off type of event in 2012. Now, the two-day event, which runs Sept. 10-11 this year, is a must-attend celebration of nerd, geek, art and pop culture that attracts fans, cosplayers, celebrities, artists and just the merely curious from all over the country.
Quite an evolution from an event Brister didnt expect a lot from.
Really, it started as a one-time idea to put on a one-time show. We were hoping for about 700 people to cover our costs, explained Brister of the cons genesis. We had 4,100 attend and it quickly elevated into year two and sheesh, should we do this again. We never thought it would be more than a one year deal, a one-time celebration.
