RoberCon, a sci-fi and fantasy convention normally held in Binghamton, New York, is entirely online this year, and there is quite a bit of “Harry Potter” and wizarding world content on the panel schedule.
Over the weekend, MuggleNet attended an intimate, fan-focused convention in Binghamton, New York.
Wizards, Jedi, and time travelers: Robercon 2016 had something for everyone. Since it’s my hometown convention, I’ve watched it grow from having no “Harry Potter” presence to this year’s programming, which included two panels of “Potter” content and hundreds of people dressed in House colors.
With convention season upon us, there are a large number of nerdy events to attend.
Superheroes, space warriors, and wizards all came out at Robercon 2015, and MuggleNet was there in the midst of it all. Robercon, an annual sci-fi and fantasy convention in Binghamton, New York, advertises itself as a place to “let your geek flag fly.” Hundreds of people turned out to take Robercon up on that offer. Author Tamora Pierce served as the guest of honor for the weekend, speaking on panels, answering questions from eager fans, and doing book signings. Of course, there were plenty of panels and activities for fans of J.K. Rowling’s magical world to attend as well.
