Conventions Are Back!


After Such A Long Wait, IRL Conventions Have Finally Returned

Conventions are back! After a long wait, nerds, geeks, and fans can finally meet up and celebrate the stuff we love! No longer is everything being postponed, canceled, or only digital! If it’s safe for you to do so, it’s time to break out those cosplays that you’ve been working on, dust off your backpacks and carrying cases, and find your people. 

Here are five upcoming cons that might be a good place to start. 

New York Comic Con!

In one of the most culturally rich cities in America, we have nerds of all stripes coming to party. The event is from October 7th to the 10th and takes place in the Jacob K. Javits Center, New York, NY. 

Wizard World Chicago!

Are you in the Windy City? Then bundle up with your pointiest hat and get over to Wizard World Comic Con! They’ll have incredible merch and fan-favorite guests. It runs from October 15th to the 17th in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

Wasabi Con!

Like anime? Like video games? Like cosplay? Well, then come on down to Jacksonville, Florida, and check this one out for yourself. They’ll be featured cosplayers and several awesome voice actors there. It’s from the 16th to the 17th of October in The Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center.

Powerhouse Comic Con!

With a guest list straight out of classic Japanese movies and franchises, Powerhouse Comic Con promises to be a fun and affordable convention full of creators, vendors, and plenty to do. It’s coming soon, happening on October 9th at Alameda County Fairgrounds, in sunny Pleasanton, California.

Super Jersey Comic Expo!

If you love comic books specifically, this is the one for you. It’s got several guest artists and plenty of amazing comics to buy. You can also sell or trade comics if you have some. If you can get to Holmdel, New Jersey, it’s happening on November 6th

And that’s just five of the many cons coming soon. Wherever you go, whatever characters you dress as: it’s a good time to be a nerd. Get out there and have some fun!
