It's about that time of year again when us here in Eastern Washington get together to share our love for pop culture, comics, sci-fi, anime, video games, movies, TV shows, and all points in between.

Lilac City Comicon is running its annual event in downtown Spokane celebrating its 18th event.

You can find Lilac City Comicon at the Spokane Convention Center on June 1st - June 2nd.

It wouldn't be a convention without guests and they have some great ones this year. Emily Swallow from The Mandalorian will be there along with Tait Fletcher who you'll recognize also from Mandalorian but also John Wick and several other projects.

Voice actors Erica Shroeder (Pokemon, One Piece, etc) and Stephanie Nadolny (DBZ, Dragon Ball) will also be on site.

Legendary wrestler Sgt. Slaughter will also be on hand for autographs and selfies and, with any luck, no cobra clutches.

As a special treat one of the guests is Dmitrious Bistrevsky, the actor who played Darth Vader from the new Disney Plus series Obi-Wan Kenobi will be on hand. He's a native to Spokane and a great guy all around so this convention will be a bit of a homecoming for him.

Some also love attending for the unique shopping experience. 300+ exhibitors, artists, and more covering more than 85,000 square feet of the Spokane Convention Center will satisfy your shopping experience. Whether you're looking for unique art pieces, hand drawn custom designs from the artists themselves or even memorabilia from your childhood are bound to be found.

There's also a cosplay content. Plenty of amazing cosplayers from around the region show up to showcase their creations. It's always fun to see people, young and old alike' dress up as their favorite characters.

Lilac City Comicon is going to be a great time. Grab your tickets now and follow on Facebook for updates.
