Welcome to VGM CON. This annual celebration combines music performance with tournaments, indie games, panels, workshops, energy drinks, and a whole lot of fun.

VGM CON is organized by Gamer’s Rhapsody: a 501C3 non profit organization.

Our purpose is to create a community of engaged creators and fans around video games through unique experiences you can’t find at home.

All of the members of our planning committee are volunteers and are members of the video game development or game music community.

We are a welcoming community of people from all walks of life and enforce an environment where attendees can be themselves as long as it isn’t at the expense of someone else.

Gamer’s Rhapsody is the presenting organization that hosts VGM CON. This organization is volunteer run by the planning committee.
