PopCon celebrates all aspects of pop culture. Rather than focusing on a specific genre like other conventions, PopCon focuses on a variety of genres including television, comic books and virtual reality. 

“The thing that makes PopCon so different is it’s for everyone,” explained Kari “KJ” Johll.

Of course, a big part of PopCon for participants is dressing up like their favorite characters across pop culture.
