6 exciting Florida conventions in September

September is an exciting month for anime, comic, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror cons in Florida. In fact, it’s downright unfair to the rest of the universe that we have so many good conventions in just one month. 

The month’s lineup includes three conventions in central Florida, and three in north Florida. 

Regarding the main focus of the conventions, there are 2 comic conventions (Ocala Comic Con, Daytona Beach Comic Convention), 1 anime convention (Anime St. Pete), 1 sci-fi & fantasy con (Ancient City Con in St. Augustine), 1 horror convention (Fantasm Orlando), and 1 pop-culture convention (Fan Boy Expo Orlando).

“The weekend of September 16-17 fans have their choice of a comic convention, a horror convention, or a sci-fi & fantasy con!”

Here are the conventions in date-order, with main focus identified (keeping in mind comic conventions are generally broad in genre and often also include sci-fi, fantasy, and anime).

Main Focus: Pop Culture
