Announcing ToonFest at OMG!Con 2016

Posted by The TTR Team on January 23, 2016 at 9:00 AM

Last year, Toontown Rewritten hosted the first official real-world ToonFest event since 2007. You've seen the videos, you've heard the excitement, and you've BEGGED us to know if it's happening again.

Today, we are extremely excited to announce that ToonFest will be returning once more to OMG!Con 2016 in Owensboro, Kentucky!

Last year, Toontown's ToonFest celebration involved two panels led by the Toontown Rewritten team themselves that debuted exclusive content such as our first advertisement, the announcement of Storm Sellbot, and sneak peeks at what's to come! We also held plenty of activities such as a real-life pie toss, gameplay sessions, and meet-and-greets.

This year, we're going to be expanding that even more with all sorts of new things to keep you Toons entertained. We are working closely with the OMG!Con staff to provide an experience out of this world for all of our players who are able to attend! If you thought last year was fun -- that was just a practice run compared to what we have in store.

As time goes on, we will be posting updates to our blog to announce the exact activities that will be taking place. In the meantime, here is the basic information you need to begin planning your trip!



OMG!Con is a big place, but tickets and hotels sell out quick. Click here to visit their website, and visit the "Registration" page to order tickets. You'll also save $5 on tickets for ordering before March 15th!



As a member of the Tooniverse, you can get tickets (including group badges) for a discount!

  • Toontown Rewritten will be a main exhibitor at OMG!Con 2016, which lasts from June 10th to June 12th. (Friday to Sunday)
  • Each day will be packed with Toontastic activities, however Saturday is the day of our main event!
  • This event is a real-world celebration for Toontown's 13th anniversary. ToonFest 2016, the annual in-game celebration of Toontown Rewritten held in Acorn Acres, will still be hosted on September 19, 2016.
  • The event will be recorded and uploaded for those who are unable to attend -- but you really won't want to miss it if you are able to be there in person!
  • Toontown Rewritten receives no profits or revenue from this event -- we're just in it for the celebration of all things Toontown! All convention costs are being paid out of pocket by our loyal staff members.
  • OMG!Con is a big convention full of all sorts of things to do outside of Toontown Rewritten - you may come for us, but you'll want to stay for the day full of fun!

We know that a lot of you were hoping that ToonFest would move to a closer location this year, but we spent a lot of time looking at locations and events until ultimately deciding that OMG!Con was the one that could offer the best experience for our players. Don't lose hope, though -- as Toontown grows, so will our events!

Last year, over two hundred fans showed up JUST for Toontown -- and because we have announced the convention so early this year, we're expecting that number to increase greatly! OMG!Con brings in an estimate of 2,500 attendees.

So what are you waiting for? Come by and join the fun! There's plenty to do, and we're just as excited as all of you. Stay TOONed on our blog for more information as it becomes available, and we hope to see you at ToonFest!

YES! I love Toonfest at OMGcon! Thank you TTR! YASSS! =)

Ooowoo said on January 23, 2016 at 9:09 AM
YAY! I NEVER GOT TO GO LAST YEAR SO I CAN FINALLY GO THIS YEAR! :D

Angelina said on January 23, 2016 at 9:09 AM
I would LOVE to go but I'm not allowed to and I live really far away but I hope everyone has fun if they live there :)

Hairy Pawter (118 Laff) said on January 23, 2016 at 9:18 AM
Darn, I don't believe I can make it this year, either! I have grandparents in Kentucky, but the ride to Owensboro is nearly four hours out of our way. Have fun, to those who can go!

Flower said on January 23, 2016 at 9:23 AM
Once again, I cannot come, sadly. I can't travel that far, especially with a performance that weekend.

Sir Trickalot said on January 23, 2016 at 9:23 AM
I just want to say, it must be hard on your team. It's a free multiplayer game for everyone in the family to enjoy. You get no money, but you still try and keep the game back. I think that is really generous of you guys! Thank you for reviving toontown when Disney shut down theirs. And also, I hope I could make it this year!

Patriotic Sam said on January 23, 2016 at 9:27 AM
This is awesome!!! I probably won't be able to make it because I live far away from Kentucky, but it's still cool you guys are doing this again for everybody! GL Toontown Rewritten Staff!

Purrman Meowville said on January 23, 2016 at 9:32 AM
Wow! I might have to buy me a plane ticket and some OMG!Con tix!

Caticature said on January 23, 2016 at 9:32 AM

Toonling said on January 23, 2016 at 1:11 PM
This sounds great, but it's during my exams and no where near the UK! Aw :(

Lapis said on January 23, 2016 at 1:16 PM
This sounds so cool! I made my first toon last June near the end of the month. I've had a TTR account since 2014 or so though, before open beta. I really wish I could attend this but I live in Texas and can't afford plane tickets :v Whoever goes I wish you a very fun time!

Super Zany said on January 23, 2016 at 1:23 PM
I want to go SO badly, but Kentucky is super far from where I live. :( I hope the toons who DO go have a toontastic time, though, and maybe I'll see you there!

Megasnoop said on January 23, 2016 at 1:42 PM
I know I'm going! Can't wait to see the whole gang again! :D

Zeexie said on January 23, 2016 at 2:01 PM
Sadly, I wont be able to come to Toonfest due to vacation and events in my family. Hopefully it is fun and exciting for everyone that goes. This is Zeexie, character known as Coffee The Brown Cat, signing out. =D

Master Flappy Biggenberry said on January 23, 2016 at 2:09 PM

said on January 23, 2016 at 6:03 PM
Well, I wish you good luck on doing it once more this year! Keep working on TTR, & keep making Toons happy as they can be! On a different note, I really wish for TTR's Field Offices to have a lot more freedom & flexibility.

Peanut said on January 23, 2016 at 6:22 PM
I would love to go this year, but sadly I can't. My daughter is graduating from high school that same weekend. Good luck to all who attend.

Sergeant Laffenfish said on January 23, 2016 at 7:03 PM
So, there's going to be another Toonfest in the game? If there is going to be another one, that'd be nice.

Sounds like a it's gonna be a "toontastic" experience! Wish I could "teleport" there right now, but I think I'd rather stay here where it's warm and sunny than there where it's snowy and "Brrrgh"! ;)

Princess said on January 25, 2016 at 11:51 AM
Woohoo! Looks like it will be an awesome year!
