While the New York Comic Com marks the traditional end of the “comic book convention season,” the reality is comic book conventions are happening nearly every weekend all across the country. 2017 is rounding the corner to the end of the year, which is why Wizard World has announced a slate of conventions for 2018.

The 2018 schedule, which will likely add some additional cities to be announced, is comprised as follows (*denotes new for 2018):

  • January 5-7, New Orleans, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
  • February 2-4, St. Louis, America’s Center
  • March 2-4, Cleveland, Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland
  • April 13-15, Portland, Ore., Oregon Convention Center
  • May 17-20, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Convention Center
  • June 1-3, Des Moines, Iowa, Iowa Events Center
  • June 8-10, Columbus, Ohio, Greater Columbus Convention Center
  • *July 13-15, Boise, Idaho, Boise Centre
  • August 23-26, Chicago, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center
  • September 21-23, Madison, Wis., Alliant Energy Center
  • October 26-28, Oklahoma City, Cox Convention Center
  • Fall TBD, Austin, Texas, Austin Convention Center
  • *October/November TBD, Biloxi, Miss., Mississippi Coliseum & Convention Center
  • *October/November TBD, Montgomery, Ala., Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at
  • the Convention Center
  • *October/November TBD, Peoria, Ill., Peoria Civic Center
  • *October/November TBD, Springfield, Mo., University Plaza Hotel & Convention Center
  • *October/November TBD, Winston-Salem, N.C., Benton Convention Center

In addition to the announced games, Wizard World has announced five events in Biloxi , Miss., Montgomery, Ala., Peoria, Ill., Springfield, Mo., and Winston-Salem, N.C. have been postponed from their originally scheduled fourth-quarter dates in 2017 to similar dates in 2018.

There have been some ups and downs for Wizard World over the last couple of years, so I hope everyone who plans on going to these conventions in 2018 don’t find their show cancelled at the last minute.
