We are pleased to announce that next summer you can find LeakyCon in not one, but two wonderful cities! LeakyCon announced on Wednesday that they would be coming to Portland next summer. During today's Leaving Feast our founder Melissa Anelli announced that - in association with Alohomora  - there will also be a LeakyCon in London, England!

The Portland LeakyCon will be the last weekend in June 2013, with registration opening September 1st. The London LeakyCon will be the second weekend of August.  Stay tuned to Leaky for more info!

When I first saw the news that this would be in Portland and London, I thought how awesome that we would be taking over an island here in the UK as well as the capital city… doh! Silly nelly, marrows for brains. To be fair I didn’t know what ‘OR’ meant, though that doesn’t really make me seem any smarter…

Well at least its getting closer to me. Now just move about three states down and you’ll be in mine! :) So great that LeakyCon is going to England, homeland of Potter. And UK-ers say they never get anything Potter related!

Don’t feel too silly, Nelly. You aren’t from the U.S. (I assume), so you aren’t expected to know, right?

Wow, it seems there are a lot of Portlands! On Twitter they said Portland OR, and on another website (tumblr or Leakycon, I can’t remember) they said ‘city of roses’ so I would guess it’s Portland in Oregon.

SlytherClawMaid You’re very kind. Yeah I’m from the UK and had only heard of Portland in the UK before lol.

When we were sitting in the Leaving Feast my friends at my table were happily discussing LeakyCon in Portland, Oregon. One of them lives quite close and was quite happy about it. The rest were happy to take a trip to the Pacific Northwest. Then, they announced the second LeakyCon in London and it made the one in Portland feel like a Consolation Prize. It quite took the wind out of our sails. Well, it took the wind out of the sails of the entire room. People went from being happy they could go to Portland to depressed they couldn’t go to London. I’m happy for the people going to London. It just took the lustre off Portland.

WON, there were a LOT of people at LeakyCon in wheelchairs. I’m certain our group would be willing to help you out. You wouldn’t have to worry about walking too much.
