FidgetCon was created in 2017 by an 8-year-old boy who had difficulty "fitting in" and with his grandmothers help, they created a day celebrating all things fidgety. The children and adults that come to the event, revel in a different mind space than other children, so this their opportunity to play.
Children who are "Fidgety" are not given a celebration or day of fun that focuses on their needs. This event is a place where they can see many different kinds of fidget toys and participate in activities they do not get to try anywhere else.
All activities are free to all participants and fidget prizes are awarded for participation. All parents and children come together to participate in a fun day of celebrating the different ways that Fidgets help to calm and inspire children to succeed. FidgetCon will continue to add current "fidgety" toys and activities. We award participants with raffle tickets that are for a free grand prize, so there is no cost for the children to win. The first year, we gave away a drone, last year it was a bicycle.

The goal is two-fold, first to get guests to find new businesses in Morro Bay and introduce a new set of customers to the wineries and breweries.
