This past Sunday, November 27th, we attended the Chicago Pop Culture Convention in St. Charles, IL. It was held at the Pheasant Run Resort and put on by Zurko’s Midwest Promotions. It was billed as a ‘multi-genre convention of Comics, Toys, Gaming, SCI-FI, Legos, Stars, Anime, Horror Films, TV/MOVIE MEMORABILIA, Autographs, Super Heroes, Anime, Action Figures, Cosplay, Fantasy, Horror, Collectibles, Sports Memorabilia, Non-Sports Cards, Vintage Music Memorabilia, Publishers & Artist Convention.” That’s a mouthful but probably the best way to describe it.
By going on Sunday, we missed a lot of great people and costumes, but we still had a great time.
Stay tuned for follow-up articles with a few of the guests and vendors that attended this convention including;
Zurko’s isn’t a name I have heard or seen too often in cosplay and comic conventions. They tend to specialize more in flea markets and trade shows, but they have been a growing influence in the Chicagoland area with popular shows such as the Wheaton Haunted Halloween Flea Market. It looks like they plan to hold two more of these events and I look forward to attending them both in 2017, May 20th & 21st and November 25th and 26th.
