Leaky Con Event Spotlight

Potterheads, it’s time to Slytherin to the 10th anniversary of LeakyCon! As the largest-ever celebration of “The Boy Who Lived,” LeakyCon is back for another magical year this August in Dallas, and this October in Boston.

Rediscover the magic of Harry Potter’s story once again as you experience hours of panels, programs, cosplay, and performances created with fans in mind. Whether you’re a member of “The Old Crowd” or are just discovering J.K. Rowling’s enchanting world for the first time, LeakyCon is the place for you!

Join Harry Potter fans from across the globe for a weekend-long celebration of the extraordinary impact this young wizard’s story has had on both the Wizarding and Muggle worlds. Discuss age-old Potter fan theories and the newest discoveries that have just been revealed, cosplay as your favorite character, wear your House pride on your sleeves, or sport your best Mugglewear. You can even attend dedicated meetups for your specific House and commiserate with your fellow Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs, and Slytherins.

With a wide range of panels spanning all weekend long in both locations, you’ll have every opportunity to connect with fans from across the globe, hear from stars and creators of the Harry Potter films about their experiences bringing the magic to life on-screen, and so much more. Sit down for the “Unbreakable Vows: What is the Truth?” panel to dive deep into what it means to create an Unbreakable Vow and the magic behind it. Check out “The Long, Wonderful, and Totally Weird History of Fanfiction” as Cindy Massre walks you through the many twists and turns of fanfiction history. And participate in “Super Sorting,” where you and the rest of the audience sort superheroes into their Hogwarts Houses!

Plus, you’ll be able to get autographs and photographs with some of your favorite stars from the Harry Potter films! At LeakyCon Dallas, you can meet up with Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson), Afshan Azad (Padma Patil), James Payton (Frank Longbottom), and more! Be sure, too, to join in on a session with wand choreographer Paul Harris for a wand workshop. And, exclusive to Boston, are special appearances from Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski, Fantastic Beasts series) and Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley), with even more to come! Want an even more rocking experience? At both locations you’ll experience the peak of Wizard Rock Bands with performances from Harry and the Potters, Tonks and the Aurors, Draco and the Malfoys, and more. Check out the lineups for both Dallas and Boston!

With additional exciting experiences like cosplay contests, the LeakyCon Marketplace, and wizarding exhibitors, you’ll be sure to have a packed schedule!
