The mascot crew is soooo sleepy! And the staffers have been too; I know I’m still recovering from the magical whirlwind that was PopCult Anime 2019. And I don’t just say ‘magical’ this time for theming – you guys really came out for us this year absolutely smashing previous years’ attendance and pre-reg numbers.
Thank You So Much.
Here’s a link to our PCAC 2019 Feedback Survey. Please fill it out if you’ve got a minute to spare! We’d love to hear all your thoughts on how we’re doing, if you enjoyed the con this year, or anything else you think should be brought to our attention both good and bad. Your feedback is so important to us and helps us to build a better convention and community events.
Things will be quiet over here for a while as the pieces of PCAC 2020 come together and 2019’s info gets archived. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for off-season news like local convention appearances, staff shenanigans and early bird registration info! Til then, we say ‘Good night!’
Posting from the sunny beaches of PopCult Anime Con! With pre-registration closing on July 31st, there’s been a right clamor to find out how else peeps can join us for the best party con of the summer!

Are your bags packed for Wizard Summer Camp?!!?! …Yeah, mine neither. It’s too hot and procrastination is so tempting!
How about some motivation! Here’s an early release of the full weekend schedule for PopCult Anime Con 2019! (Subject to change, final versions will be available at Registration!) Speaking of registration, online pre-reg ends tomorrow night at 11:59pm EST! There’s no more time to wait, go-go!
And that’s it from us, mermaids and lifeguards! We’ll see you at PopCult Anime Con!
Told you we weren’t done announcing Legends! Rounding out our lineup of talented guests and performers this year are:
Land in Chaos LARP and Charles Dunbar from StudyofAnime.com! Learn more about them on our Local Legends page!
An early access version of our Panels Schedule is now available under Programming>Panels! Meticulously planning Badgers and Snakes might actually be able to start cobbling their own con schedules together if they combine the new Panels info with that on the Artist’s Cafe, Game Shows and Wizard Summer Camp pages! We imagine the hearty Lions will be winging it, while the Eagles wait patiently for the full schedule to arrive. Don’t forget to be sorted into your Camp Houses here! See you in two weeks, Campers!
A little over two weeks to PopCult Anime Con and we just may have been holding out on you guys! Freshly added to our Local Legends lineup:
