BeanCity Gaming and BeanCon
WHO WE ARE
We are a grassroots organization of gamers who want to make tabletop gaming accessible and inviting to everyone to wants to play.
WHERE WE COME FROM
Like many great ideas, the concept of BeanCity Gaming, Inc. and our flagship event, BeanCon, started as an idea tossed around at the end of a fun gaming session with friends. We wanted a gaming convention that put representation, diversity, and convention safety at the top of their priorities.
We started BeanCity Gaming, Inc. as our non-profit organization and started to organize BeanCon as a way to expand the thriving Boston gaming scene with an event that celebrates all members of the tabletop gaming community in a safe and inclusive environment. We’re currently in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) tax-exemption status.
In addition to hosting BeanCon, as a charity organization, BeanCity Gaming will raise funds to help promote non-traditional creators in the gaming community, as well as donate to organizations that support women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and peoples of color.
