Winnipeg Celebrates Pop Culture!

On April 9th and 10th, 2016, thousands of Winnipeggers converged on the RBC Convention Centre to celebrate everything 90s at the Winnipeg Pop Culture Expo!

Fans shopped the many exhibitor tables stacked with toys, games, art and other nerdy awesomeness. Kids of all ages took part in retro gaming tournaments. And special guests Kenn Scott (TMNT) and Phil Guererro (PJ Phil) rocked the house with their infectious energy and enthusiasm.

On Saturday, Kenn challenged fans to a round of TMNT Tournament Fighters on the Super Nintendo. “Raphael” was beaten by many, but managed to pull out a few rounds toward the end.

It’s clear that attendees of the Winnipeg Pop Culture Expo had a great time. “Best con ever!” said one fan on our Facebook page, “my first, and I’ll definitely be at the next one!”

We also had some great reactions on Twitter:
