Funko brings FunKon to Hollywood with three-day virtual and in-person fan event

The pop culture and consumer products company, Funko is bringing its fan-facing virtual FunKon to Hollywood with a three day event featuring celebrity appearances, behind the scenes content from Funko’s Hollywood store, a host of giveaways, and more.

Following on from the success of its other recent virtual events like Funko Fair, FunKon will take place in the company’s 40,000 square foot Hollywood store, where the event will be able to be enjoyed both virtually and in-person.

“The past year proved that virtual experiences can resonate with our fans as much as in-person events,” said Brian Mariotti, chief executive officer at Funko.

“As California begins to lift in-person event restrictions, FunKon brings us all together at our world-class Hollywood store to experience best in class entertainment and pop culture – virtually and in-person.”

The event will begin with the introduction of a new philanthropic programme from Funko called Pops! With Purpose, before launching into a three day celebration offering new video content, including a short documentary titled The Making of Funko Hollywood, celebrity guest appearances, interviews with Funko employees and executives, livestreams of Funko artists, exclusive Loungefly items and more.

FunKon will also see the return of Funko’s unique fan event, Fundays, where fans can virtually participate in a competitive event in which four teams face off in a variety of challenges.

Fans around the world can tune into the event virtually while US-based fans can register to attend FunKon in-person at Funko Hollywood.
