Derek Zemrak, founder of the KROFFT KON, discusses how the event was born, “The idea of KROFFT KON came about when Butch Patrick, Lidsville, and I were talking about doing a classic TV weekend event. Butch threw out Krofft shows and I quickly responded – love it, let’s do it! And here we are. The event had blown up with attendees flying in from all over the country. The VIP seats sold out in less than 30 hours. KROFFT KON is a 70s kid’s dream. Just think about all 50+ year adults re-living their Saturday mornings in front of our family’s TV set.”

 

Admission is only $25 for all day. Tickets at the door will be $30. For more information visit www.KrofftKon.com
