DrawnCon Animation Convention is Coming to New England

If you’re like us, then you probably didn’t think you needed another pop culture convention to choose from? Well, that was before we heard about DrawnCon, a brand new convention created especially for the creators and fans of Western animation. Coming to the Nashua Radisson Hotel on November 2 and 3, it will focus on the current crop of popular animated shows on TV and online—My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Bravest Warriors, Gravity Falls, Young Justice, and the like:

“From the Saturday morning cartoons you remember as a kid, to modern favorites like Adventure Time and Archer, Western animation is undeniably one of the most popular and commercially successful genres in the North American market. The question of what makes it so successful, however, stems from a number of points—the accessibility; the dedication of the content creators; the vast amount of material available – it’s impossible to pigeonhole.”

The grassroots event will feature everything you’ve come to expect and love from organized gatherings of its kind, including animation culture roundtables, costume contests, special guests including Bravest Warriors character designer Bob Flynn and Emmy-nominated voice actor Jessica DiCicco (Adventure Time, Pound Puppies, Gravity Falls) and events like the DrawnConcert, a Saturday night rave featuring DJ Alex S., DJ Calcos, and Exploding Heart Technique.

Tickets can be pre-ordered on the DrawnCon website ($45 for adults and free for children under 13) and visit the official DrawnCon Facebook and Twitter pages for event updates.
