Florida, The Sunshine State, is known for its diverse population and variety of wildlife in the Everglades National Park. Aside from being the ideal vacation destination, Florida’s booming scene of comic, gaming, horror, anime, collectible, and furry conventions, caters to all of Florida’s residents to ensure there is always something going on this 2017!
Necronomicon is Florida’s premiere Sci-Fi, horror, and fantasy convention, in Tampa Bay, FL. Taking place around Halloween, Necronomicon is a vibrant, yet dark, celebration of H.P Lovecraft’s life, works, and influences on culture today. This convention features art, gaming, exhibitions, dancing and so much more. With a decidedly gothic theme, Necronomicon is the perfect event to explore the horrors lurking just out of sight and discover the monsters living within.
If you cannot get enough horror, The Bay of Blood in Tampa is a fall-weekend event, dedicated to horror movies. Organizers gather the greatest names in the genre, both current and past, (we all know the best horror movies came out before the advent of CGI) and screen independent films and full movies, like never seen. To top it off, costumes are encouraged, turning this event into a monstrous invasion of Tampa Bay, FL, area!
