Dallas to Host Harry Potter Convention in 2018
Potterheads, I have great news. We can all go geek out together in Dallas next year. That's right, there's a Harry Potter Convention coming to Texas.
What's the deal? Well, tickets go on sale Nov. 15, for LeakyCon, scheduled for Aug. 10-12 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas. This convention, produced by the fansite, The Leaky Cauldron, was held in Dublin this year.
Ticket prices range from $59 for a day pass up to the premium experience, Marauder's Pass at $349.
After a wildly successful 2017 event in Dublin, Ireland, LeakyCon returns to the United States and, for the first time, will bring its magic to Texas. Featuring some of the biggest fans, actors, and creators, LeakyCon will host panels, interviews, discussions, and celebrations of “The Boy Who Lived” and the extraordinary impact his story has had on both the Wizarding and Muggle worlds. LeakyCon is produced by Mischief Management.
Since its first event in 2009, LeakyCon has brought together tens of thousands of Harry Potter fans, providing a fun, vibrant, and safe space to enjoy the things they love. LeakyCon has been held in cities across the United States, from Boston and Orlando to Portland and Burbank, as well as internationally in London and Dublin. For its ninth event, LeakyCon will travel to Dallas, Texas.
2018 will be a good year for Harry Potter fans in Texas because on top of this Dallas Convention, there's also a U.S Quidditch Cup being held in Texas in April!
