Penticton’s Annual Pop Culture Festival! The Penti-Con is dedicated to pop culture on every level. Whatever your genre or hobby there is a place for you here.

We host a variety of competitions for you to enter and showcase activities all weekend for you to take part in. 

Originally a summer event, the Penti-Con found its home in the Penticton Trade and Convention center. Vendors filled the ballroom with their wares while workshops and panels on various topics ran continuously in the side rooms. On the main stage one could find talent, costuming and guests to entertain. Families could play games together and there were arts and crafts throughout the day. Connections were built. Bonds were formed. A legacy was started. 

2023 will be our fifth event! Come celebrate with us!
