Event Description

Join us April 26-April 28 for the 15th edition of Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)! You're invited to the only comic, cosplay, and pop culture convention in the heart of downtown Chicago. We've gathered your favorite celebrities, unique exhibitors, incredible comic artists, and larger-than-life literary authors, along with you of course, into one place to celebrate the fandoms you love. We have something for everyone, from a Show Floor packed with top exhibitors, autograph sessions, panels, screening rooms, exclusives, After Dark events, and a massive Artist Alley. If you've always dreamed of attending the biggest geek party in the Midwest, then look no further. This is your weekend to get wild and be free with other nerdy Chicagoans. Epic memories and awesome friendships await you at C2E2, the show created for you.
