Politicon is an annual, non-partisan political convention in the United States.[1] Co-founded by Simon Sidi,[2] its objective is to bring "Republicans, Democrats, and people of all political stripes together to banter and spar over the most topical issues in smart and entertaining ways that often poke fun at both sides of the aisle."[3] It has been called the "Comic-Con of politics"[4] and the "Coachella of politics".[5]

It was held in Los Angeles in 2018.[6]
