On your mark, get set, derby! Don’t miss this two-day event at Imagination Station. We’re taking racing to a whole new level. Create a car to race down the hills and valleys of our 40 foot track. Don’t worry about supplies we have that covered -- all you need are your best automotive ideas. Race to see if you can be the Greased Lightning or the Slow and Steady of the bunch.

Penguicon 2015
through
Westin Southfield Hotel (Southfield MI)

Penguicon is a three-day event where we all learn from each other (as well as from our Guests of Honor) about hacking, building sci-fi universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music, incredible costumes, and more.

Our two pillars are Science Fiction and Open Source, but we cover as many diverse nerdy interests as possible. We have a consuite with free soda, coffee, munchies and other real food, which makes it easier on your budget. You can find all kinds of original artwork and non-commodity crafts in our enormous Maker Market.

Over 1,300 nerds, geeks, and fans attend Penguicon every year to celebrate and share in what we all love. We are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit convention which brings together every kind of geek – software developers, moviemakers, authors and their fans, hackers, foodies – for a weekend of sharing in panels, workshops, and parties.

Dozens of people work on the convention throughout the year, for no more than a pat on the back as people come ‘home’ to Penguicon each year. Penguicon has helped people collaborate on new art projects, meet life-long friends and change careers.

A Toledo meet-up group is organizing a trip to Penguicon: http://www.meetup.com/newintown-645/events/221616319/
