The first Momento Con will be at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center May 9-10.

The ever-growing Pittsburgh pop-culture convention scene will have two additions next year — one new show and one resurrected show.

The first Momento Con will be at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh on May 9 and 10. Horror Realm Con — which ended a multi-year run in 2017 — will return to the Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South hotel March 6-8.

Both conventions will have exhibitor booths, celebrity panels, autograph and photo opportunities.

Momento Con’s current roster includes three “Supernatural” actors — Mark Sheppard, Rob Benedict and Matt Cohen — along with Amanda Tapping (“Stargate SG-1”), Richard Speight Jr. (“Jericho”), Lauren Tom (“The Joy Luck Club”) and Steven Williams (“21 Jump Street”). The show is being run by the Altoona Sci-Fi Valley Con.

Horror Realm Con’s current roster included Tiffany Shepis (“Tromeo and Juliet”), Tony Moran (“Halloween”), Caroline Williams (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Patricia Tallman (“Night of the Living Dead”), Judie Aronson (“Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter”), Kelli Maroney (“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”) and “Movie Outlaw” author and filmmaker Mike Watt.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
