Island Con

REF NR: 7006

The UK's only destination comic con and the country's fastest growing pop culture convention returns on October 20-21, 2018, bigger, badder and better!

Hollywood stars and industry creatives will be taking over Cowes in what is projected to be the second largest annual event on the Island in 2018 behind the IOW Festival.
Already confirmed to appear is one half of Jay & Silent Bob, Jason Mewes, alongside fellow 'View Askew' and Kevin Smith alumni Brian O'Halloran, Ming Chen, Brian Johnson & Mike Zapcic.
The event also plays host to more EU-wide exclusive reunions with five cast members of the American Pie films including Hollywood stars Tara Reid & Mena Suvari alongside Shannon Elizabeth, Thomas Ian Nicholas & Chris Owen.
There's also a very special appearance by Hollywood legend Sean Astin who appears alongside fellow 'The Goonies' cast members, Joseph Pantoliano and Ke Huy Quan.
Also recently announced is pro-skateboarding legend and Jackass star Bam Margera in another EU-wide exclusive for 2018. All of this before we even get to mentioning special exclusive UK appearances by Bai Ling, Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa, Samantha Mathis and Connor Trinneer among many others!
But it's not all about getting to meet Hollywood legends and childhood heroes, there is so much more to do and see at the festival-feel convention that you'll need a whole day just to make the most of the experience.
There are special fan and prop zones complete with attractions including Star Wars, Doctor Who, gaming areas, a large dino zone with dinosaur displays and a fully fledged Kid's Zone. There is literally something for everyone at Island Con.
Island Con also plays host to a packed program of live stage interviews, Q&As, cosplay contests and panel discussions which are all included in the general entry ticket. There's food areas, a large exhibition hall, a whole host of independent movie actors and creatives, evening parties, thousands of colourful characters, and not forgetting a full roster of comic book artists and writers!
This is an amazing opportunity to meet Hollywood legends, have photos taken with your heroes and enjoy the festival-style convention to the max. This is simply the coolest pop culture convention in the entire country and it's right here on the Isle of Wight. Island Con has already gained worldwide recognition with tickets sold as far afield as South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore and all over Europe. The event welcomes fans from across the world to the Isle of Wight this October 20-21.
