Be one of the over 100,000 fans to flock to the South East’s largest comic, sci-fi, anime, horror and gaming convention.

MegaCon Orlando hits the Orange County Convention Center May 25 through the 28. Meet celebrities, rock the catwalk and geek out with fellow fans.

“We're looking forward to welcoming over 100,000 fans to the Orange County Convention Center for MegaCon this Memorial Day Weekend,” MegaCon Orlando Vice President Andrew Moyes told SFGN. “Megacon is an inclusive and diverse event with something for everyone - regardless of your fandom!”

This year’s MegaCon is chock-full of celebrity guests. In a “rare appearance,” 1975 Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Tim Curry will be appearing Saturday and Sunday for photo opportunities and autograph signings. Former President and Chairman of Marvel Comics Stan Lee is also a guest — making his last Florida appearance.

The convention has dozens of events to choose from, including a costume contest with over $2,400 in prizes. 

There is also special programming dedicated to victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

“This year a key programming track are the Love is Love events which are being held to support Equality Florida in honor of the victims and those impacted by the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting,” Moyes said. “The fourth edition of the comic anthology “Love is Love” will be on sale throughout the weekend as well as a live comic art show/auction fundraiser and a meet and greet with some of the biggest names in comics including George Pèrez, Jason Aaron, Gail Simone, Scott Snyder, Tom King and more.”
