What is Pyrkon?

Fantasy Club "Druga Era" decided to organize the first fan convention in Poznań in 1999. This convention has been growing larger for fifteen years, so eventually it became the biggest festival in Poland and one of the biggest in Europe.

Talked about us:

What for do we come to Pyrkon? There are as many reasons as many guests go there: some come for interesting lectures or to buy gadgets, and others to show perfectly prepared costume, or just to meet friends from distant parts of the country.

Despite the great impetus and total use of fifteen halls of Poznań International Fair, I didn’t have a feeling that the size of it tore away its soul. This convent is organised by fans for fans; this natural and unpretentious attitude can be seen everywhere, among participants, organisers and vendors.

Surely, I will take part in next Pyrkon – perfect organisation and wonderful atmosphere have convinced me enough. I do encourage all of you, even those who live far away.

During these few days at the grounds of Poznań International Fair, fans of fantasy, manga and anime, science-fiction, games, cinema and literature have met each others. That mixture of interests and passion might be hard to connect at first sight, but Pyrkon is a great proof that it is possible.
