A convention is coming!
Late last year, Warner Bros. announced plans for an official Game of Thrones convention, put on in partnership with Creation Entertainment, which was initially scheduled to take place this past February. The event was postponed to later this year, and now there is finally information about new dates, an updated location, and a full guest lineup for this show.
Fans won’t be traveling all the way to Westeros, nor will they be heading to Vegas, where the convention was initially planned to launch. This year’s Game of Thrones Official Fan Convention will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Dec. 9-11.
A slate of previously announced Game of Thrones stars will be at the convention, including Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane), Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark). However, with the show’s new date and location comes a new headliner: Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow himself.
There will be two hosts for this celebration of all things GoT — Jason Concepcion and Greta Johnsen, who are also the hosts of The Official Game of Thrones Podcast: House of the Dragon podcast, which is launching tomorrow.
During the three-day, live event, fans will be able to enter cosplay and trivia competitions, shop for Game of Thrones merch on the show floor, attend panels, and pay for cast meet-and-greets and autograph sessions. There will also be an evening dance party hosted by DJ Kristian Nairn (Hodor).
Tickets for the Game of Thrones Official Fan Convention are available now at the event’s official website. This is where you can also get the most up-to-date information about the show, including accommodations, schedules, and more. The all-days tickets are available in on-theme packages, including Raven ($195), Direwolf ($259), Dragon ($399), Iron Throne ($989), and Iron Throne First Row ($1,489).
