Perú Comic Con 2023: Celebrating Pop Culture in Lima

Perú Comic Con, the largest pop culture event in the country, is set to take place in Lima from July 14-16, 2023. The convention will bring together fans of comics, anime, video games, movies, and TV shows for a weekend of cosplay, panels, exhibits, and special guests.

Organizers expect over 50,000 attendees at this year's Perú Comic Con, which will be held at the Jockey Exhibition Center. The venue will feature over 200 exhibitor booths showcasing collectibles, artwork, apparel, and more from the worlds of entertainment and pop culture.

One of the highlights of Perú Comic Con is the cosplay contest, where fans dress up as their favorite characters to compete for prizes. Past winners have impressed with intricate costumes of iconic figures like Spider-Man, Goku, Harley Quinn, and Naruto. The convention will also host a cosplay parade through the exhibit hall.

Special guests announced so far for Perú Comic Con 2023 include comic book artists David Finch and Sana Takeda, voice actors Cristina Vee and Zach Aguilar, and cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao. They will participate in Q&A panels, signing sessions, and photo ops with fans throughout the weekend.

In addition to the main convention, Perú Comic Con will feature side events such as a Magic: The Gathering tournament, a K-pop dance competition, and screenings of popular anime series. Food trucks will be on site offering snacks, meals, and themed treats.

Tickets for Perú Comic Con 2023 are available online now, with options for single-day or full weekend passes. VIP packages with exclusive perks like early admission and access to a lounge area are also being sold. Organizers encourage fans to buy in advance, as the event has sold out in previous years.

Perú Comic Con began in 2015 and has grown to become a major fixture in the Lima pop culture scene. It is organized by Perú Events, a company that also runs similar conventions focused on technology and entrepreneurship.

"We're excited to bring Perú Comic Con back bigger than ever in 2023," said show director Diego Herrera. "It's a chance for fans to come together, celebrate their passions, and have a lot of fun. We can't wait to see everyone's creativity on display through cosplay and share the experience with our incredible special guests."
