“Not-A-Con” Like Any Other
While the Nauticon name is a nod to Provincetown’s seaside location, it also derives from a more literal origin. The event prides itself on being “Not-A-Con.” Instead of offering the traditional comic-con experience, Nauticon is the “ ‘boiling down’ if you will, of what makes cons fun to those over the age of 21.” The event website goes on to say that “Nauticon (The 21+ Convention) is a creative and fun way for fans of anime, science fiction, fantasy, comic books, and all things nerdy to get together and get to know one another.”
