OMG!Con 2016 was the second real world ToonFest event hosted during the summer of 2016 to celebrate the 13th anniversary of Toontown. The event took place at a convention called OMG!Con in Owensboro, Kentucky from June 10, 2016 to June 12, 2016. Toontown Rewritten updated fans that could not make it to the live event throughout social media and mostly with Snapchat, through the account "ToontownTV".
Toontown Rewritten uploaded YouTube videos of event highlights and a full recording of two panels. After the event, new ToonFest 2016 Blue Backpack and ToonFest 2016 Pink Backpack items were released for all Toons by redeeming the code "omgcon2016". Attendees could also redeem special codes they received at the event for an exclusive ToonFest 2016 Blue Attendee Backpack and ToonFest 2016 Pink Attendee Backpack.
On July 2, 2016, Toontown Rewritten started sending out Member Mailers until the 31st to offer players a chance to receive their very own trading cards from OMG!Con. The trading cards introduced this year consists of Flippy, Doctor Surlee, and Robber Baron. Along with the trading cards, players also received a Toontown postcard.
