It took almost 18 months, but the first Momento Con will finally be at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4 and 5.
The pop culture event will have multiple panels, meet and greets, photo and autograph opportunities, artists, vendors and cosplay.
Many of the cast from fantasy drama television series “Supernatural” will be there: Misha Collins (Castiel), Mark Sheppard (Crowley), Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Asmodeus), Ruth Connell (Rowena), Rob Benedict (Chuck Shurley/Carver Edlund), Ruth Connell (Rowena), David Haydn-Jones (Arthur Ketch), Adam Fergus (Mick Davies), Alaina Huffman (Abaddon), Matt Cohen (Michael), Jim Beaver (Bobby Singer) and Curtis Armstrong (Metatron).
Armstrong is perhaps best known for his role of “Booger” in the “Revenge of the Nerds” movie franchise, “Moonlighting” (Herbert Viola) and his voice work as “Snot” on “American Dad.”
The event will be hosted and moderated by Clare Kramer, best known for playing Courtney in the 2000 Kirsten Dunst cheerleading comedy, “Bring It On,” and as Glory in the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” TV series.
The show is being run by the Altoona Sci-Fi Valley Con. It was originally scheduled for May 2020. Among the covid-19 precautions are temperature checks, mandatory masks and a plexiglass screen during autographs.
