Fan Expo Chicago 2023 is already preparing for its second-annual event following the success of its initial Windy City debut in 2022. The convention was rebranded from Wizard World Comic Con and Fan Expo recycled a hallmark of celebrating pop culture and entertainment media in the Midwest after revamping one of Chicago's most popularly-attended comic conventions. Fan Expo Chicago previously assembled leading industry figures, interactive attractions, and immersive fan experiences upon reintroducing itself, and looks forward to making a grand return in the late summer.
Priding itself as being four fun-filled days of fan culture, Fan Expo Chicago 2023 has already set out to excite conventiongoers by rolling out their initial guests. The convention has fulfilled its promise of being an all-encompassing epicenter for entertainment and reflects its appreciation for all reaches of media in its impressive guest rosters across all Fan Expo shows. While it's a unique start that offers appeal to pop culture enthusiasts of all ages, the first handfuls of guests are teased to only be the beginning of what Fan Expo has in store for Chicago. Christina Ricci (The Addams Family, Netflix's Wednesday), Henry Winkler (Happy Days), Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter), Steve Burns (Blues Clues), Emily Swallow (The Mandalorian), Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Tom Wilson (Back to the Future), and Peter Weller (RoboCop) have been named as the first guests set to appear at the event. Guests will be offering photo ops and autograph sessions throughout the duration of the weekend.
Ticket sales for Fan Expo Chicago 2023 are officially live and Fan Expo Chicago will return from August 10 to August 13, 2023, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
