POP CON

Grab your sonic screwdriver, deerstalker hat, or lightsaber and head over to Granville’s first-ever popular culture convention, POP CON!  Fandoms collide with fun activities, cosplay, displays, and engaging breakout sessions. Whether you love time travel, zombie apocalypses, or galaxies far far away, we have something in store for you!
 
Comic Shop Plus from Newark will be set-up on site with limited merchandise for sale.  Be sure to visit our Star Wars Cantina for fandom button making, Star Wars origami, The Walking Dead kerplunk, HeroClix demos, Star Wars Jedi Master Cyan Mal-Te, miniature gaming displays, and more!  Food concessions provided by Whit’s Frozen Custard and Elm’s Pizza.
