It’s the last official day of VidCon, though Disney Day is pretty official at this point. The amazing events happening over in Anaheim haven’t slowed down though. We picked the events we’d be hitting up before the end of another VidCon!
Now this list does not include the Q&A’s and main stage events for specific channels. Our list features the topic panels that will be happening. Each event has certain ticket track requirements. So make sure that you have the right pass to enter these event before you start queuing up. But without further ado, here are our top picks for Saturday at VidCon!

What better way to end VidCon than with a giant dance party? We will be playing music until midnight, so put on your dancing feet (you know, not the tired feet that have been carrying you around the convention center all weekend) and join us at the VidCon Prom. Formal attire is encouraged but not required — though some form of attire is definitely required.
