KCON USA is an original convention that promises to bring "all things Hallyu" to American fans. This includes pop music, movies, TV dramas, fashion, beauty, and food -- everything that Hallyu encompasses. In 2019, there will be KCON events in both Los Angeles and New York.
The New York KCON 2019 convention will take place at Madison Square Garden on July 6-7 and then they will travel to the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on August 15-18.
This is the seventh year for the event, which started in 2012 in Texas at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irving, Texas. They grew over the next three years and expanded to a five-day festival in Los Angeles and New York. It continues to expand and now there are KCON events in Japan, Abu Dhabi, Mexico and Australia.
This is a can't miss event for fans of Hallyu, as every year people drive from across the nation to attend one of the two conventions to celebrate with music, food, and more.
