Penti-Con making a bigger return next year

The one-day Comic-Con-style event this year will be run as a two-day event next year

After what they’re calling a successful inaugural year, the Penti-Con is announcing a return to the convention floor next year — this time for two days.

Held on Jul. 8 this year, the Penti-Con offered Penticton its first ever Comic-Con-style convention. That included things like swordplay; vendors selling comic, fantasy and sci-fi related items; some tabletop games and speakers.

“Geeks of all ages and genres will find something to enjoy at the second annual Penti-Con,” organizers said in a news release, announcing a return next year.

Next year’s event will be running on June 9-10, 2018, this time at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.
