Nostalgia Con 2019
September 28-29, 2019

Nostalgia Con is a fan convention celebrating the 1970s to 1980s. Nostalgia Con was held September 28 to 29, 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center. It was a very small convention, but I enjoyed the panels and seeing all of the great fan cars on display.
The Flux Capacitors performed on the convention floor during the convention. There was a Boombox Museum with so many boomboxes of various sizes. Remember when bigger was better for portable radios?!
There was a panel featuring three of the original MTV VJs telling stories of how MTV began, doing cocaine with rock stars, and hosting a 24 hour worldwide concert while simultaneously partying with rock stars. Other panels included Dawn Wells from Gilligan’s Island, Sean Astin and Corey Feldman talking about The Goonies, Christopher Lloyd, and CHiPs to name a few.
I wish there had been more attendees at the convention, but I hope they return in future years.
