Megacon Orlando came roaring back on August 12-15, 2021. Florida Comic Cons caught up with a seasoned con expert who attends conventions in central Florida to get the details. He told us the weekend at Megacon Orlando 2021 was “mega-fun.”

Megacon Orlando 2021 draws large crowds

Nocedo reports the crowds were very large, except for Thursday. “On Saturday, the vendor’s room was packed like sardines,” he said. And, he believes the crowds may be larger than the upcoming DragonCon 2021 on September 2-6 in Atlanta, Georgia, which is known nationally for its attendance. “I feel this crowd may surpass DragonCon,” he said.

In addition, Nocedo said many attendees were not only from outside of Florida but also from outside the U.S. “The crowd was very international,” he said. “I met up with people I haven’t seen in more than a couple of years since the pandemic shutdown cons.” Nocedo estimated approximately one-third of attendees were cosplaying.
