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.”

Kids 10 and under are just $5 per day and children under the age of 2 are free when accompanied by a parent or guardian. You can also purchase celebrity photo ops starting at $10, Film Festival tickets and tickets to Friday's live TV filming of Paranormal X Road LIVE.
