About Nickel City Con
For years, Nickel City Con has been the event geeks go to in Buffalo. From artists to vendors, this con brings you a ton of excitement and fun. And at this year’s event, you’ll get a chance to meet Power Rangers, stars from Jay and Silent Bob, Star Wars, and Napoleon dynamite. And that’s only the start, because there’s also a slew of artists as well. This is your chance to meet them all and talk about your favorite topics!
But what con is complete without cosplay? With the official contest, you’ll have an opportunity to see some of the best cosplay around. Combine all of it with the panels, and you’re in for a serious con experience. Still, we also love the Horror Fest that’s at this year’s con as well. There’s even guests from Tales from the Crypt! Finally, the gaming is a step above at this con, and the vendors have everything you can imagine!

How should you get to Nickel City Con and where should you stay?
The Lafayette Station for the area’s light rail is a couple of blocks from the event on Main St, near W Mohawk St.
The event is being held right off the city’s Niagara Square, with several transit stops nearby. The closest bus stops are the Delaware Ave and West Mohawk St and Court St and Main St stops. For private cars, from I-190, take exit 8 headed northwest. Then turn right onto Niagara St and once through the roundabout, head northeast on Genesee St, which will take you directly to the event.
We recommend Hotels.com for finding great deals on hotel rooms.
