ArlingCon: Arlington's FREE Pop-Culture Convention

virtual arlingcon

The Arlington Public Library is excited to announce that ArlingCon is going virtual! Celebrate fandoms and interests in a family-friendly atmosphere on Saturday, June 13 at the 6th annual ArlingCon!

Arlington’s premiere pop-culture convention, ArlingCon is offered every summer by the Arlington Public Library, UTA Libraries and community partners. Join us on Saturday, June 13 for the same free community-driven convention experience as ever—this year, from the comfort of your own home.

The online convention will still feature costumes, art, gaming, creative workshops, and activities for children and families. We're working with our presenters to highlight the parts of the convention that are the best fit for a virtual environment. With a mix of live, prerecorded and interactive content, fans will have their pick of streaming events! The full online schedule will be released in the coming weeks.

Get ready for ArlingCon by joining the Facebook event and following UTA Libraries on Instagram. The convention is free and registration is not required.

Vendors and artists who registered for tables at the in-person convention will be receiving refunds on their booth fees. Please email with any questions about this process.
