ROBLOX BLOXcon was a real-life Roblox event that was held annually. BLOXcon 2013 was the third conference of its type held, after the ROBLOX Game Conference 2012

Unlike other Roblox conventions, BLOXcon 2013 was held in a tour-like fashion. The tour started on May 18, 2013, and May 19, 2013, at the San Mateo Event Center in San Mateo, California. The first official stop of the convention was at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois. The Chicago conference took place on July 13, 2013. The next stop of the convention was located at the Royal Air Force Museum London, England. It took place on July 27, 2013. The last stop of the convention was located in New York City on August 10, 2013, at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.

Tickets were put on sale for $15.00 for the American events (New York City and Chicago); for the London stop on the tour, they are £12.00. Passes for all three of the BLOXcon locations have been sold out as of May 2013. People received a free virtual fedora in their Roblox inventories for attending any one the BLOXcon conferences; all were granted a white fedora themed with where they attended, and for the first 3,000 tickets purchased per area, they were awarded a black version of their fedora.


Film Festival

On April 13, 2013, Roblox introduced an event known as the Roblox Film Festival. People could create videos for a certain category. The winner of each category received a BLOXY award, as well as having his/her film played at BLOXcon.
