LeakyCon Harry Potter Convention Is Coming To Texas Next Summer
If you’re a diehard Harry Potter fan but you don’t live in Dallas, Texas, you’d better start saving for a bus/train/plane/apparition ticket now. LeakyCon, the biggest annual Harry Potter fan convention in the world, is headed straight for Dallas next summer.
In case you’re like WTF is LeakyCon?, here’s the scoop: LeakyCon is an annual Harry Potter convention held in a different city each year. Previous LeakyCons have been held in Dublin, London, Orlando, Portland, and Chicago, and have drawn in thousands of Muggles who just want to nerd out for a weekend.
LeakyCon 2018 will take place the Hyatt Regency Dallas from August 10th through the 12th. Tickets go on sale November 15th, with single-day passes priced at $59. The general pass for the full weekend is $149, and for those with some extra money in their Gringotts bank account, a V.I.P. Marauder Pass costs $349, and includes two celebrity autograph sessions, one celebrity photograph session, in addition to exclusive merchandise and other perks.
As far as what Potterheads can expect to see at the convention, no talent has been announced yet, but previous conventions have brought many of the film’s actors, special effects creators, Harry Potter podcasters, and “Wrock” (wizard rock) musicians.
