Welcome to Westeros: ‘Game of Thrones’ Convention is Coming To Vegas

'Winter is coming' to the Rio in February of 2022

Pull out the sweaters and coats Vegas, Winter is coming. No, we aren’t referring to the actual weather. Who are we kidding? The high today in Las Vegas is forecasted to be 100 degrees, (pause for dramatic effect) on September 3rd.

What we are referring to is an tremendous three-day long official Game of Thrones Fan Convention taking place here in Las Vegas. The epic experience will be held at the Rio Hotel & Suites Convention Center from February 18-20, (incidentally, as close to winter temperature-wise as Vegas ever gets).

Order the outfits and prepare your paraphernalia as the fan convention will have special guests, photo ops (can you say ‘Iron Throne’) and autograph signings (fingers crossed for Kit Harrington, but don’t hold your breath). In addition to panels and trivia competitions, we know there will be a place to shop for Game of Thrones merchandise (the Funko collection alone should be worthy of any Queen). But, that is about all we know at the moment as convention organizers promise more info on scheduling and ticket prices to come.

Game of Thrones is no stranger to Las Vegas. Back in April of 2019 they took a vacation from the seven kingdoms and settled on the Strip for a one-of-a-kind experience at the Bellagio Fountains. In the lead up to the final season of the pop culture television phenomena, a new water show sprouted from the fountains with its own original music in a four-minute long show complete with pyrotechnics. You know, because it’s Vegas.

In the meantime fans have a couple of things to keep them occupied. The prequel series House of Dragon is slated to premiere next year. First look images were released this spring.
