The National Boombox Museum: The nation’s most prominent boombox collectors and NostalgiaCon are teaming up to launch the National Boombox Museum, a fully curated, interactive experience. This unprecedented museum features rare boomboxes from every year of the 1980s, including the films where they appeared, a breakdance floor for Hip Hop fans to show off their best dance moves, and a “Wall of Boom” photo space that will allow convention-goers to Instagram their personal pictures or videos with some of the most outrageous and colorful boomboxes of the era.
The ‘80s Car Show: Rev those engines because the DeLoreans of “Back to the Future” fame and other iconic ‘80s cars will be lining up for their Instagram pics with fans at NostalgiaCon.
As part of a partnership with the DeLoreans Owners Association, NostalgiaCon will showcase three different versions of the time machine vehicles that are forever identified with ‘80s pop culture. Other ‘80s vehicles on display include Trans Ams, Firebirds, a Family Truckster ala “Vacation”, a “Ghost Buster” ambulance, and more.
The ‘90s Throwback Lounge: In preparation for a major announcement about NostalgiaCon’s ‘90s Pop Culture Convention, NostalgiaCon’s “Nod to the ‘90s” Lounge will be your destination for the decade of Slap Bracelets, Beanie Babies, and the Macarena.
Shop: Of course, no retro experience is complete without shopping and if you want nostalgic games, clothing or toys, our Retro Pop Marketplace has you covered.
