Times of Future Past has left Wisconsin and is returning to its original location in Des Moines, Iowa. During our time at Winter Park in Kewaunee, we met amazing people, and for that, we will always be grateful. Sadly, we realized that NE Wisconsin is not a good fit for our cosplay event. Attendance did not meet our expectations over the last three years. As producers, we are 100% behind the concept of Times of Future Past, and we know it is our responsibility to do what is necessary to give our event and our vendors the chance to thrive, and we believe that moving the event to a larger market is best. Iowa has a strong cosplay following, with Des Moines being centrally located, as well as three or less hours away from Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha. Our event’s original location for our first two years, at Sleepy Hollow Sports Park, is once again available to us and our management team agrees it is time to return to our roots. We are excited by the potential that returning to central Iowa brings to Times of Future Past. We offer our thanks to the local businesses in NE Wisconsin, that bought program ads, or participated as sponsors. To the patrons who have attended Times of Future Past over these last three years, we invite you to join us in Iowa, on June 8 & 9, 2024. Please check out our Facebook page and website often, to learn more about our future plans!
