Happy New Year, PopCult fam! 🍻 Here’s to a healthy and innovative 2021~
We’d like to take a moment to reiterate that there is no scheduled date for PopCult Anime Con 2021 at this time. If that changes, our return and all its details will be posted across ALL our social media platforms and this website so if you follow us in any capacity it will be hard to miss us! Registration is closed* until further notice, but pre-registered attendees (including artists and vendors) will be notified via email as soon as new dates** are announced.
In the meantime, we’ve decided to branch out a bit just like pop culture changes and adapts to the times. For 2021, PopCult Anime Con will be amping up our social media outreach with weekly topic discussions in our Facebook Social group, monthly cosplay meetups on Discord, community promos and mascot adventures with Wacky and the Gang on Instagram, and pop-media industry news via Twitter. Follow us on your favorite socials for fun, news, community and more!
We are really looking forward to the time we can do all this with you in person again! Until then……
six feet apart please! Keep wearing those masks and washing your hands like mermaids depend on it (because they do!) 🌊🌊
*Registration is closed but donations are always open! Help make our next con the best it can be~
**New dates for PCAC may not necessarily occur within the 2021 calendar year.
Thank you for bearing with us during these difficult times.
Winter chill got you dreaming of the beach? You’ll feel your heart warm right up when you book your room for PopCult Anime Cons 2020: Retro Block Party Weekend! Whoo!
It’s our fifth year as a con and we’re proud to be bringing you the same low hotel rate this year as we’ve had the previous four: $119/night at the totally bangin‘ Sheraton Framingham castle, barely an hour away from metro Boston. Convention floor space is expanding too, and we’ve got some righteous new programming in the works for you guys. It’s gonna be killer! Click here to reserve your hotel room today!
Early Bird Registration is still open, our best ticket deal for the year, a full weekend registration including pre-reg exclusive Friday night bonus programming for just $35. We know we know, the funds are tight around the holidays but you deserve a present too right? Maybe buy one for a friend, like who expects an anime convention when they’re tearing up that pretty paper!!! Just remember to act fast – like flying reindeer the early bird special disappears at the end of December when our regular pre-reg options open on January 1.
Whatever you do, however you celebrate or ring in the new decade know that we, the people behind PopCult Anime Con, wish you the merriest happiest and most wonderful festive season. Peace and goodwill to all mankind, mermaids and seagulls. Happy Holidays!
