About Flint Horror Con/Monster Marketplace
Hi, and thanks for your interest in the Flint Horror Convention and Monster Marketplace.
Of the dozens of questions you may have for us one of the biggest may be - who is driving this bus to crazy town?
Just like you.
Flint Horror Con is comprised of friends who are lifelong fans of horror, special effects, haunted houses, and all the things that go bump in the night. Right along with our love for the creepier things in life is a strong love for Flint, Michigan, where we'll be having the event. It isn't hard to find negative things about Flint with a quick search but what is often missed is the passion and talent that is here every day and it's our hope that in bringing the convention downtown we'll join a growing trend of new life and excitement here.
The Flint Horror Con sprang from a desire to take all of our collective passions and to create something special for horror fans in Mid-Michigan. All four of us have been to a lot of conventions and too often you feel like you are cattle and are hit with high prices at every turn so our aim is to give fans a day where they can get together and have fun, watch some movies, dress up in costumes, and pick up something scary from our vendors and all for a low entry price. We want to make a fun, friendly, and inexpensive day. A day you won't forget.
At its heart the Flint Horror Con is about you guys, the fans, because we're fans too and we can't wait to meet all of you.
So what is the Monster Marketplace and what happened to the Horror Con?
After four wonderful years we realized that we just weren't able to put on shows the way we had been any longer. We love doign them and hope you folks loved them but we just were not able to financially support the enterprise any longer. We took a break in 2015 and focused on smaller, free, events and internally decided what came next. We love doing shows too much to let them go so we have created the Monster Marketplace, which is basically a stripped down horror con. We'll still have guests, and vendors, and contests, and short films but we'll be doing all of it on a little smaller scale. It's our hope that you'll give us a chance and fall in love with what we're doing all over again. We are dedicated to doing low cost horror shows in the Mid-Michigan area and are honored to be able to have so many great folks support us.

Want to see what the con is like? Some friends in UM-Flint's film department made a short video of the 2011 Con.
**The Flint Horror Convention is a FOR PROFIT enterprise.**
Why? Because we feel that there are too many worthy charities and community focused organizations that are better suited for non-profit status. We are a horror show, though one that is community focused, and as such we see no point in trying to be non-profit. Any proceeds from the con go right back into the con to keep this big monster truck of terror rolling.
If you have any questions about us, just ask.
