Ohio, is birthplace to six United States Presidents, and with a nickname like ‘The Heart of It All’ it is no surprise that Ohio is home to a huge variety of Gaming, Anime, Horror, Sci-Fi, Collectibles, Furry, and Comic Conventions. Whether you live in OH, or are just passing through, there is sure to be a convention just for you this 2017.

Cleveland’s Wizard World Comic Con in Spring 2017, is a massive travelling convention, featuring over 90 guests, and hundreds of exhibitors, vendors, and artists! An all-night rave is to be held at the Agora Theatre in Cleveland, Oh, but that is only a fraction of the musical talent appearing. Visitors can get exclusive content, participate in panels, photo ops, buy merchandise and original art, and watch some of epic anime being screened at the event. Dress up as your favourite super hero and participate in the cosplay contest, or come as you are and enjoy the variety of pop-culture fandom.

If you are unable to make it to Wizard World, the Cincinnati Comic Expo, may be the comic convention for you. Featuring a massive immersive and interactive area dedicated to Star Wars, Cincinnati Comic Expo also hosts the Cincinnati Zombie Walk, and a $1500 costume contest! The Geek Prom 2017 is Hogwarts themed this year, and it will pit members of the four houses against each other in competitions to prove which house rules all! Be sure to visit the Cincinnati Comic Expo this fall, 2017!

Three Anime Conventions will be taking place throughout 2017 in Ohio as well! Glass City Con in Toledo, Oh, is a mid summer 2017 event featuring Anime Screenings, Gaming, and Cosplay. A huge anime dedicated exhibition area is available, and all sellers are thoroughly vetted, to stop the infiltration of bootlegs. The Artist Alley will be filled with tonnes of independent and professional artists, offering you the perfect chance to find a unique and original piece, or hire a commission! MatsuriCon in Columbus, Ohio is specially themed this 2017 as “Mecha Vs. Magical Girls” MatsuriCon features a similar, but much larger, venue to Glass City Con. Midoricon, Oregon, OH, is an early fall, indoor-outdoor, Anime with acres of land to explore. You can ride horses, Race carts, take remarkable outdoor photoshops, and much more.
