Pasadena Convention Center
300 E Green St.
Pasadena, CA 91101
If your social media timeline hasn’t provided enough politically-charged fodder in recent months, a unique convention is hitting LA this weekend that has been referred to as a sort of Coachella for political junkies. Politicon pools together outspoken names from both the entertainment and political realms in various panel discussions and presentations. Here, master orator James Carvelle will have a detailed conversation with Sarah Palin. Fans can participate in a Q&A with Roseanne Barr and soak in a debate with Ann Coulter. With conversations like “Is Trump A Pyschopath” and “Millennials Calling BS” this is definitely the unconventional political convention.
Cat Con LA

Cat people are a passionate bunch, so much in fact they actually have their own convention. Boasting two days of cutting edge feline technology as well as everything from art and culture revolving around cats, attendees can cover every base when it comes to their cats. Furniture, art, toys and clothing, everything on hand is dedicated to cats in an expo that is quite comprehensive. Of course
