Fan Expo Cleveland Debuts April 29-May 1, 2022

CLEVELAND, November 9, 2021 – Since 2015, pop culture fans of all ages have reveled in the excitement of a major comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming convention at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. And while the name might be different, the anticipation is palpable as the show makes its supercharged return, bigger and better than ever as FAN EXPO Cleveland, April 29- May 1, 2022. Executed with the highest level of health and safety measures in place, the show will welcome fans to reunite for a weekend of non-stop programming and special guests. Tickets for the first FAN EXPO Cleveland are available now at https://fanexpohq.com/fanexpocleveland/buy-tickets/.

FAN EXPO Cleveland brings its unique brand of excitement to an event that will feature top celebrities, hundreds of exhibitors, creators and cosplayers as well as compelling programming, meet and greets, special events, kids zones and more. FAN EXPO Cleveland will feature everything fans have loved about Wizard World Cleveland with even more all weekend. Details on guests and schedules will be announced soon.

“We are overjoyed to be able to safely welcome fans back to the show floor after a difficult hiatus due to COVID-19,” said Andrew Moyes, Vice President, FAN EXPO HQ. “At its core, the show is a community; a place for belonging, and a pop culture haven to escape to. We look forward to building on six years of outstanding events here with a new, reinvigorated brand and revitalized attendee experience.”

COVID-19 restrictions prevented the 2021 event from being held. Cleveland is one of six events previously organized by Wizard World that have become part of the FAN EXPO family on the 2022 calendar: New Orleans (January 7-9); Portland (January 21-23); Philadelphia (April 8-10); St. Louis (May 13-15); and Chicago (July 7-10).

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
