Hey PopCult fam~ Big news update!! We had a staff meeting (via Discord) this past weekend and discussed a lot of topics you guys have been asking us about – new dates, the hotel, etc. Let’s get down to business!
ICYMI PopCult’s con hotel, the Sheraton Framingham went up for auction this past November citing lost business due to Covid-19. We were heartbroken at the news and send our condolences to all the former staff at the Sheraton Framingham. You were so wonderful to us and we adored your venue – you will be dearly missed!
Taking into consideration the loss of the Sheraton and how the pandemic is still affecting the entertainment industries, a decision was made for PopCult Anime Con to remain postponed until 2022. A staff committee was formed and will use this extra time to search for a new location for our next event.
Don’t think you can take your eyes off us though! Our staff is busy planning more virtual events, social opportunities and prize-winning contests to drop throughout the year and help keep that PopCult community spirit flowing! We’ll be having so much fun, 2022 will be here before you know it~ Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Facebook Social
The Sheraton Framingham and other vendors we’ve worked with in the past are shutting down or raising prices to survive. After two years in lockdown we want to put on the very best show for you, but we’re staring down a lot of unpredictable extra expenses with no pre-registration income to fall back on. So we’re humbly fundraising, as small donations now could add up to an incredible event down the line.
Can’t donate? That’s okay – share! Tell your friends about us, invite them to follow us on social media. It’s not a beach party (virtual or otherwise) without people to dance with! From Summer, Wacky and everyone at PopCult Anime Con – thanks for sticking with us through these crazy times and supporting small, local cons!
