Harry Potter fan convention coming to Denver

Expecto patronum! The unofficial Harry Potter convention, LeakyCon, will come to Denver next October.

DENVER — Harry Potter fans, rejoice! 

The unofficial Harry Potter fan convention, LeakyCon, is coming to the Mile High City for the 2020 Halloween season.

The weekend-long wizarding celebration will take place Oct. 23 to Oct. 25 at the Crowne Plaza Denver Airport Convention Center.

"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 organizers said. 

In addition to hearing from the stars and creators of the films, fans can also explore the LeakyCon Marketplace for Harry Potter merchandise and collectibles or rock out to an assortment of Wizard Rock bands.
