Indiana’s PopCon Returns to Indianapolis for 8th Year July 9-11
If you fall under the category of geek, gamer or superfan, you do not want to miss out on PopCon Indy July 9 - 11, 2021.
The three-day event will take place at the Indiana Convention Center and will feature an incredible guest list full of rockstars, big-name celebrities, voice actors and creators. Some of the guests at this year's event include:
- Emily Swallow from hit series Supernatural and the Mandalorian
- Holly Marie Combs from Charmed and Pretty Little Liars
- Kate Flannery and David Koechner from The Office
- Jim O’Heir from Parks and Recreation
- Jim Cummings, the voice actor of Winnie the Pooh
- CJ and Richie Ramone from The Ramones
The event isn't just about the celebrities though. It's really about creating an inclusive environment for the creators and fans, regardless of their particular fandom. According to the press release,
PopCon continues to bring some of the largest names in pop culture to Indianapolis, but the event’s true mission is to give creators of all kinds a platform to find new audiences. Instead of focusing on one specific fandom, PopCon Indy flips the script on the typical con experience by focusing on all genres of fandom.
“At its core, PopCon Indy 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 be back with some exciting new activities for our eighth year,” said Carl Doninger, president of PopCon Indy. “PopCon Indy 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.”
