A Con for Fans, Made by Fans

Not Your Typical Con Experience

PopCon was founded to celebrate all aspects of pop culture, rather than just hyper focusing on a specific genre. We have a wide variety of interests – just like our fans – so we created a con to celebrate them all in one awesome weekend!

Our Unifying Theme - The Creators

The pop culture landscape is changing. Once upon a time, artists and creators would have to be discovered to find successful careers in their industry. Today? The ability to create and self-publish gives artists more power than ever. We want to help them grow their craft and share their art with fans from all over the world.

Discover Your Next Obsession

As fans, you can help us achieve our goal by attending our con with an open mind. If you come for comics, then enjoy the artists and writers and add to your collection. But take a moment to talk to a podcaster, and learn about their work. Engage with a gamer, or pick up a science fiction book. Your newest obsession is right around the corner at PopCon.

For the Fans, By the Fans

We didn’t arrive to this plan on our own. Through community events, social media, and direct feedback, our fans have told us loud and clear what they want. We continue to listen, grow, and evolve our show and hope to become one of the premier events that celebrates the creators and the fans who love them.

The Story of PopCon

PopCon was created by a group of friends who love geeky things.  We have a few gamers, a couple comic book fans, a Doctor Who obsessor, a YouTube enthusiast, and even a couple of My Little Pony fanatics.  While our passions are varied, we were brought together by our shared geeky-ness. Our convention ultimately mirrors what we believe is the truest definition of “geek.”

Someone who I would describe as a ‘geek’ or ‘nerd’ is a person who loves something to its greatest extent, and then looks for other people who love it the same way, so they can celebrate loving it together.
