ORLANDO, Fla. — MegaCon Orlando is back, and in a big way for the 2024 edition of the popular fan convention.

The event, the largest of its kind in the Southeast, kicks off Thursday at the Orange County Convention Center for four days of entertainment for comic, sci-fi, movie, TV and anime fans.

There will be plenty of things for fans to do: from panels and workshops to meetups and shopping. They will also chance to see some of their favorite celebrities (the lineup is jam-packed this year), as well as get their autograph and take a picture with them.

It’s expected to be a busy, busy weekend. To help you prepare, here are a few things to now about the convention before you go.

When is MegaCon Orlando?

MegaCon Orlando, hosted by Fan Expo HQ, takes place at the Orange County Convention Center from Feb. 1 through Feb. 4.

Which celebrities will be at MegaCon this year?

The celebrity lineup is stacked this go-round. It might be easier to list who’s not going to be at MegaCon at this point. Some of the big names that will be in attendance include Tom Hiddleston, Ewan McGregor, Michael J. Fox, Geena Davis, Marisa Tomei, Gaten Matarazzo, Rainn Wilson, Christopher Lloyd, Cameron Monaghan, William Shatner, Ming-Na Wen and Giancarlo Esposito—just to name a few.

That list doesn’t include the dozens of voice over actors—Ashley Eckstein, Billy West and Peter Cullen—and comic book artists—Frank Miller and Geoff Johns—that fans will be able to meet at the event.
