Florida is in a perpetual state of cosplay with more than 40 legit annual comic conventions each year. And we’re here to help with all the info on all the cons.

Florida Comic Cons is a news media website that covers comic conventions and cosplayers in Florida. The Con Calendar provides a month-by-month listing of upcoming conventions and the Con Map illustrates where comic cons are happening throughout the state. 

Comic conventions are everywhere, all the time, in Florida

Orlando is within a two-hour drive to nearly 30 annual comic cons. Tampa Bay is the same distance to more than 20. South Florida hosts nearly 10. North Florida has tremendous comic conventions from Pensacola to Tallahassee to Jacksonville. If you’re in Florida, chances are you’re less than a tankful from a bunch of comic cons.

Comic conventions in Florida rank among the largest in the nation (MEGACON Orlando draws more than 100,000 people) to the largest in the southeastern U.S. (Tampa Bay Comic Convention attracts more than 50,000 people). There are legit (meaning exceptional) small- and mid-sized conventions throughout the entire state.
