Extra Extra! Contract Your Covid Here!



BravoCon will return to New York City later this year after the event was canceled in 2021 over COVID-19 concerns. Bravo confirmed on Tuesday that the fan event will take place from October 14 to October 16 at the Javits Center in New York City.


The all-Bravo weekend will feature interactive experiences, live performances and exclusive shopping opportunities. "I will finally see you at BravoCon,' said Bravo host, Andy Cohen, in a video on the channel's Daily Dish site. '#BRAVOCON IS BACK!!! Join me & over 100 of your favorite Bravolebs in NYC October 14-16 for the #BravoCon you deserve! Get all of the details at BravoCon2022.com,' he posted in the caption.  Bravo is part of the NBCUniversal Television and Streaming division of New York City-based media conglomerate NBCUniversal.


"BravoCon emerged as a first-of-its-kind interactive event where ten thousand fans got to experience the massive Bravosphere come to life," said Ellen Stone, EVP, Consumer Engagement & Brand Strategy, NBCUniversal, in a statement. 'After the last few years, we are especially excited to bring our biggest BravoCon ever to our loyal fans for an even more memorable year.".  Really? I guess this bitch never heard of RuPaul's Drag Con or the Star Trek and Sci-Fi Con which has been going on for over 2 decades.


BravoCon launched in 2019 with attractions ranging from Real Housewives panels, photo opps with the stars, and even an epic version of Watch What Happens Live with the cast of numerous Bravo shows.  Although the inaugural BravoCon in 2019 sold out with nearly 10,000 attendees at the three-day event, many fans were disappointed that the event was held during Thanksgiving week.  Also, there was widespread criticism over the various  venues for the event not being held under one roof, but rather scattered all over NYC.


In August 2021, Bravo announced that BravoCon 2021 was being canceled over COVID-19 concerns, but apparently the plannedemic is over ... at least until the next election.
