Fans of all ages are welcome at the second annual Des Moines Con this summer. During the June 3-4 weekend, the Iowa Events Center will become a pop culture mecca full of TV, movie and voice actors, comic creators and other entertainers.

The celebrity guest list is long, and includes the likes of Ross Marquand (“The Walking Dead,” “Avengers: Infinity War”) and Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”). Look out for a Q&A session with your favorite characters, and panels with show producers and writers.

Other attractions include game tournaments, costume contests and an exhibitor and artist marketplace where fans can find merch, comics, toys, art and more. Tickets are available for single day or weekend passes.
