After fifteen years of producing pop culture events in Southeastern New England, including events such as Southcoast Toy and Comic Show, Terror Con, and its flagship Rhode Island Comic Con, as well as Colorado Springs Comic Con, the owners of Altered Reality Entertainment, LLC, Steven and Connie Perry announced this week plans for a major expansion in their calendar of scheduled events.
In addition to celebrating the 7th Annual Colorado Springs Comic Con August 25-27, 2023, and the 11th Annual Rhode Island Comic Con November 3-5, 2023, owners of the event management company plan the return of the horror and paranormal themed Terror Con, moving it to a new home at the Royal Plaza Trade Center in Marlborough, MA. The event is scheduled for September 15-17, 2023. Tickets for these events will go on sale November 25, 2022. Vendor registration for Terror Con is currently open at www.theterrorcon.com.
