Summer of Sonic is a community effort that relies so much on the hard work, goodwill and financial support of our volunteer staff; the guests that make the event that bit more special; the individuals, groups and companies that work with us on merchandise and content; the visitors that join us on the day and over the Internet; and everyone that's helped spread the word about us over the years.

In our six years of conventioning, Sega has thrown their weight behind the event by providing support, as well as most of the event budget. This year, we turned to Kickstarter for the first time to crowdfund the majority of the budget. As an event that was previously free, we didn't know how much support we'd get, and it's amazing to see how much people care about Summer of Sonic. Thank you to everyone on this page, for making SoS 2016 possible!
