A creation of Leftfield Media, Awesome Con is a celebration of geek culture and is Washington DC’s premier comic con. Awesome Con 2020 was originally planned for May. However, due to the recent developments of COVID-19, the convention has been postponed to Friday, December 11 through Sunday, December 13 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown DC.
