BoroughCon [visit site]

Comic Convention with Anime, Gaming and SciFi

May 26-29, 2017
St. John's University
Jamaica, NY

BoroughCon, a new pop culture convention will be held over Memorial Day weekend, 2017. The event, which is expected to draw more than 20,000 attendees, will appeal to enthusiasts of heroic stories in film, television, gaming and graphic formats, as well as to those who enjoy anime and manga. BoroughCon programming will include panels and autograph sessions with celebrities, gaming tournaments, screenings of both classic and as-yet unreleased films and TV shows, a vendors' room and an artists' alley. In addition to special programming for youth and children as well as their parents and grandparents, there will also be a cosplay competition judged by internationally known costume designers and models. BoroughCon, which is run by the team that launched Orlando's KnightroKon, will be distinct in the way it reflects the rough-edged but tender-hearted nature of New York's outer boroughs, which have never hosted an expo like this.
