LeakyCon is a yearly conference hosted by the Harry Potter fan site, The Leaky Cauldron. LeakyCon comes "from the Harry Potter fandom and celebrate[s] everything about it, and everything about the pop culture fandoms our community is growing to include" and "is a place where fans can, finally, be their true selves. Where that’s the coolest thing in the world to be."[1]


LeakyCon has a variety of programming, ranging from author and actor panels to attendee submitted meet ups and discussions. Team Starkid has played a large role in their programming, most notably in 2012 with their production of A Very Potter 3D: A Very Potter Senior Year. Author John Granger, known as 'the Hogwarts Professor', has given lectures about real-world themes and ideas within the Harry Potter books. In previous years, John and Hank Green have hosted various panels and meet-ups at the conference. LeakyCon features three different types of Programming. The Lit Track for all the authors, wanna-be published authors and enthusiasts. Lit Track is run by Maureen Johnson and features panels, meet ups and signings for anyone who enjoys a good book. Mainstage Programming indicates all the programming that happens on the mainstage of LeakyCon and usually features Special Guests, Wrock (Wizard rock) Concerts, Special Panels and performances. General Programming is anything from Yoga with Evanna Lynch to Panels about Severus Snape. LeakyCon opens up a Programming call months before LeakyCon which allows anyone to submit programming they would like to have at LeakyCon.
