Indy PopCon 2018 is Just Around the Corner!

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Indy PopCon is not a typical geeky convention. Instead of focusing on one area of geekdom, the event celebrates a wide range of interests: gaming, streaming, comics, cosplay, and celebrities. PopCon celebrates its 5th anniversary this year and takes place June 8th – 10th at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

In a statement from the press release, Carl Doninger, president of Indy PopCon said, “At its core, Indy PopCon is a celebration of Indianapolis and everything our great city has to offer. Unlike other conventions that visit Indianapolis, PopCon originated right here in our city, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to host the event for the fifth year in a row. Indy PopCon prides itself on being open and accepting of everyone, which is why we focus on a variety of different fandoms. There truly is something for everyone at PopCon.”

The list of guests backs up Doninger’s claim. Guests scheduled to appear are personalities from YouTube and Twitch such as Frost Prime and Girbeagly, WWE stars Kevin Nash and Lisa Marie Varon, professional cosplayers Mogchelle and Vraskaa Cosplay, Overwatch voice actors Lucie Pohl (Mercy) and Carolina Ravassa (Sombra), and a variety of artists including Chrissie Zullo, Christopher Uminga, Sara Richard, and the legendary Jim Steranko.

Want bigger names? Well, PopCon has several this year: Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead Wright from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, LeVar Burton from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Reading Rainbow, Wil Wheaton from Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Big Bang Theory, Pom Klementieff from Avengers: Infinity War and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Elizabeth Henstridge from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Tara Reid from American Pie and Sharknado.
