MegaCon Orlando is one of the largest fan conventions in the country. It covers science fiction, fantasy, and other genres. Cosplay is huge as well. I’ve been a couple of times, and enjoyed every moment! Last year was not kind to MegaCon. The organizers remained hopeful for a while, and kept moving it. Eventually MegaCon 2020 was canceled, and plans started to form for MegaCon 2021.
So far it looks like the convention will take place this year. The dates are August 12-15, and it will be held at the Orange County Convention Center. Two potential sets of dates were originally announced, these are the backup dates.
What is fun about this time of year is that MegaCon has started to announce celebrity guests. So far we can expect four hobbits; Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, and Dominic Monahan. There are sure to be more guests added in the coming weeks. Remember, guests can and sometimes do cancel.
MegaCon Orlando draws a crowd from all over the country. We don’t yet know what the guidelines will look like by August. The organizers will follow local guidance to keep people safe. If you plan to go, you might want to buy your tickets sooner rather than later. We don’t know if there will be limited attendance. You can learn more about MegaCon Orlando here.
