Family HQ

Welcome to Family HQ, your place for family friendly fun all weekend long at Florida Supercon! Is your child star struck over Star Wars? Are they an amateur artist or wee wizard? Then Family HQ is the place for you! In Family HQ, we have something for everyone. Kids and parents alike can join in our drawing workshops, interactive activities, and entertaining performances. Looking for fun for the whole family? Then bring them out to Family HQ!

Family HQ is located on the Show Floor right in the center of the action!


Play Along in Our Interactive Zone

Life's way more fun when you play along! Awesome activities await in our interactive zone. Family games, performances, story time, photo opportunities, kids cosplay showcases and so much more. There’s always something happening in Family HQ! 

Drawing Demos and Workshops

Let kids explore their artistic side early with professionals from our very own Artist Alley! Some of the creators who have made art their livelihood will join us in Family HQ to walk kids through some great drawing demonstrations and tutorials.

Free Play Area

Sometimes kids just need a place where they can be kids! That’s where the Free Play Area comes in. We have coloring pages, sidewalk chalk, and puzzles to let your child’s imagination run wild. And if they need to run wild themselves, they can be active with hula hoops, jump ropes, and giant connect four so they can play and maybe make some new friends!
