PopCon Indy planning to return this summer as in-person event

PopCon Indy, an annual event that lured tens of thousands of visitors to the Indiana Convention Center before going virtual in 2020 because of the pandemic, announced Tuesday that it plans to return to in-person status in 2021.

The multi-genre popular culture convention is slated for July 9-11 at the convention center with a full lineup.

Organizers said the eighth annual PopCon Indy will “welcome dozens of special guests, hundreds of vendors, and enough activities to fill up your entire weekend.”

PopCon Indy organizers had been expecting up to 40,000 visitors for last year’s convention before they were forced to turn it into a virtual event.

“PopCon’s 2021 show is going to be every bit as fun as our previous years,” said event co-owner Carl Doninger in written remarks. “Not only are we bringing in fan-requested pop culture celebrities, having activities like Virtual Reality, Laser Tag, board gaming and video gaming, we are working with the city and convention center to do so safely.”

Ticket information for the event is available at here.
