Funko has announced its summer virtual con ¬– FunKon – to be held in August.
June 29, 2021
Funko will hosts its conference, FunKon, at its 40,000-square foot Hollywood store virtually and in-person Aug. 4-7, 2021. The three-day event will include celebrity appearances, behind-the-scenes content from Funko’s Hollywood store, giveaways and more.
“The past year proved that virtual experiences can resonate with our fans as much as in-person events,” says Brian Mariotti, chief executive officer, Funko. “As California begins to lift in-person event restrictions, FunKon brings us all together at our world-class Hollywood store to experience best in class entertainment and pop culture – virtually and in-person.”
The event also introduces Funko’s new philanthropic program, Pops! With Purpose.
Across the three-day celebration, fans will experience new video content, including a short documentary titled, “The Making of Funko Hollywood,” celebrity appearances, interviews with Funko employees and executives, livestreams of Funko artists, exclusive Loungefly items and more.
FunKon will also see the return of Funko’s fan event, Fundays, where fans can compete virtually in an event in which four teams face off in a variety of challenges.
U.S.-based fans can register to attend FunKon in-person at Funko Hollywood, while fans around the world can tune in to the event virtually.
