If homemade slime has taken over your house more times that you can remember, you’ll want to be in the know about Slime Bash 2, the largest slime convention on the planet.
Madison Rae Greenspan, a 12 year old from Fairfield, CT, started making her own slime recipes at home and sharing them on Instagram. Just last year, she launched Maddie Rae’s Slime Glue, and then came out with custom slime jars. After her business took off, she made history: Maddie broke the Guinness World Record for Largest Slime after a team of 100+ people helped her make 13,820 pounds of the stuff at Play Fair New York at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
Maddie Rae’s Slime Bash 2 is the second convention the tween’s put on this year. Her first slime convention at Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa sold out in just 36 hours.

The convention will be held at the new Expo Center at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket for your little slimer, he’ll be able to meet other DIYers, sit in on demos, swap goods in the trading arena, listen to Q&As featuring industry insiders and shop Maddie Rae’s Slime Bash 2 Pop Up Shop. Bonus? This convention boasts DIY slime pits.
Single-day tix are going for $20 a pop and two-day passes for $35. But if your kid is a diehard slimer, you’ll want to splurge on the Mega Bash Pass for $85. It includes two day entry, early access on Saturday to the event, an invite to a private VIP party with Maddie Rae including bites and bevs, plus a Slime Bash swag bag.
Slime Bash 2 is on October 27-28 at Mohegan Sun Expo Center, located at 1 Mohegan Sun Blvd. in Uncasville, CT. Tickets are expected to sell out. Click here to get ‘em while they last.
