LEAKYCON is a fan conference. We come from the Harry Potter fandom and celebrate everything about it first and foremost, and everything about the pop culture fandoms our community is growing to include. LeakyCon is a place where fans can, finally, be their true selves. Where that’s the coolest thing in the world to be.
We started as a Harry Potter-only conference. J.K. Rowling’s stories are about the messages of friendship, community and love. These same three principles are what we at LeakyCon base our conference around, with the important addition of fun. We aim to have every attendee experience a fun, enlightening, safe and magical weekend with his or her fellow fans and book lovers.
Fans of any age are welcome to attend LeakyCon but, just as Harry had to be 11 to attend Hogwarts, our recommended age for LeakyCon attendees is 11 years of age. Most of our programming consists of panels, discussion groups, and meet-ups, and we find that it is often not suitable or entertaining for children under 11.

In 2013 is a year of firsts. We are hosting two conferences: the first will be in Portland, Oregon (our first ever in the American Pacific Northwest). The second conference will be in London, England (our first conference overseas!) Both LeakyCon Portland and LeakyCon London will feature a wide variety of panels, concerts, and special events.
