News & Announcements
We understand that the recent rise in cases due to the variant strains of Covid-19 is cause for concern. Currently Minnesota is in a safe position so we will be keeping our safety protocols minimal, manageable, and comfortable for all.
As a reminder 2D Con is a 100% volunteer based event to raise money for The AbleGamers Foundation! We believe that gaming should be accessible to everyone! Even though we cannot meet in person we are hoping to raise a good amount – if you have it to spare – wonderful!
We’re kicking things off with Midwest Speedfest, Minnesota’s Premiere Speedrunning event! Midwest Speedfest is four days long this year and features some amazing runs!
We are aware of the allegations against many prominent members of the tournament community.We are monitoring the situation closely and will follow any suspensions or bans coming from other events and tournament organizers. While many of the accused have not participated in any 2D Con tournaments we believe that taking action as early as possible is an important step in prevention.
With the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic we are not comfortable hosting the event and putting even a single person’s health in jeopardy. The safety of our staff, guests, vendors, artists and attendees is our number one priority.
2D Con is, and always will be, a volunteer run event. We spend hours planning and organizing the convention out of our love for the gaming community. Rest assured this was not an easy choice to make, but it is our responsibility to look after everyone associated with 2D Con, no matter the cost.
