WHAT IS AbraCORNdabra???
AbraCORNdabra was "conceived" just after Mothers Day 2010. The first AbraCORNdabra was May 20th ~ 22nd, 2011 held at the Adventureland Inn in Altoona, Iowa. An instant hit with everyone who attended - AbraCORNdabra 2012 was going to be the much anticipated "sequel" to the first convention. Never an easy task to meet or BEAT a much-talked about event like AbraCORNdabra; May 18th ~20th, 2012 proved to be as big of a success if not BETTER!
May 17th ~ 19th, 2013 saw the addition of a SECOND convention simultaneously with AbraCORNdabra with "The Clown CORNvention". With more than 200 attendees & a combined all-star cast of 26-headliner entertainers!
