SPARKcon IS A SOURCE OF PRIDE FOR THE ENTIRE TRIANGLE, AS OUR COMMUNITY PRESENTS THE LARGEST OPEN SOURCE CREATIVITY FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD! “FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE” creativity!
SPARKcon uses an open-source planning process so that the entire community can be a part of the community effort to present this huge creative explosion! Over 2,000 community members work to present over 200 talent showcases each year and over 84,000 people come out to witness our community's range of incredible talent! SPARKcon was founded and continues to be an open-source, non-commercial, and completely free event for our community. The festival grows each year and it is only with our community's financial support that VAE Raleigh can continue to produce SPARKcon.
