There are lots of convention lists out there but I’m creating this one as a list of well-run conventions in the immediate Chicago/Rosemont area. This list will be limited to conventions I have researched and feel are worth attending.
Anime Central is the Midwest’s largest anime convention, held annually in mid-May in Rosemont, Illinois. With over 30,000 people and tons of programming, you’re guaranteed to meet new people and have fun!
Chicago TARDIS is a long-running Doctor Who-focused convention held in Lombard, IL, over Thanksgiving weekend. The convention will be celebrating its 20th year in 2019!
