RESCUECON is a convention like no other, where the human-animal bond takes center stage. Though visual and performing arts, educational talks, family-friendly activities, and pet-friendly services, attendees will learn, play, explore, and, above all, refresh their relationship with other animals.
RESCUECON has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to add a furry family member to your home, learn more about companion animals and how we interact with them, or just do something wildly different this weekend, you are welcome!

Each week a different live band performs big band sounds from the 1930s and 1940s, along with other types of music, to keep the dance floor in a constant state of counterclockwise motion. Fox trot, waltz, cha-cha, tango, samba and even line dancing test the men’s ability to remember their steps and turns while the women follow their lead.
1st show: 10am 2nd show: 4:30pm
Amber Brown is having what may be the worst year of her life. She and Justin Daniels were the perfect team: they laughed at each other’s jokes, sat next to each other in class, and stayed best friends when Justin’s dad had to move away. But now things are different. Now, Justin’s house has been sold and he is going to Alabama; that’s too far from New Jersey to think about.
ArtsPower’s uniquely funny and forthright musical portrays a feisty young girl who refuses to let her problems get the better of her. You’ll laugh and cry with Amber as she learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of forgiveness.
Themes: Family Relationships, Language/Communication Skills, Literature-Based, Musical, Values-Based
