Awesome Con coming to Washington, DC 6/3-6/5
Awesome Con, the biggest annual comic and pop culture convention in Washington, DC, expects to attract its most dynamic crowd yet in 2016.
This June, fans will experience an impressive line-up of celebrity guests from the worlds of television, movies, and comic books and specialized pavilions focused on science and technology, family activities, and larger-than-life props and we’ll be there to cover it all!
Panel discussions bring together noted experts from comic creators to scientists at NASA; costume contests, sci-fi speed dating, and gaming tournaments celebrate all things geeky; and the show floor will feature exhibits dedicated to comics, collectibles, toys, cosplay, and original art.
Fun for fans of all ages, Awesome Con continues its commitment to creating an inclusive atmosphere for diehard fans, casual fans, and families. This year also marks the convention’s first year in partnership with LeftField Media, an event organizer created by the founder of New York Comic Con.
