Event Description:

The 6th Annual Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo is a three-day celebration of all things pop culture, September 22-24 at the Edmonton Expo Centre. Whatever you’re a fan of, you’ll find at the Expo: movies, tv, animation, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, and more! The Expo attracts over 50,000 attendees of all ages and from around the world to celebrate fandoms of all kinds, from the casual comic-book readers to superhero super-fans.

MEET YOUR FAVOURITE STARS!
Edmonton Expo attracts dozens of special guests each year for the ultimate fan experience. This year, you can meet stars from major movies like Lord of the Rings (John Rhys-Davies) and Ghostbusters (Ernie Hudson) or TV mega-hits like Stranger Things (Caleb McLaughlin, “Lucas” & Gaten Matarazzo, “Dustin”) and Riverdale (Camila Mendes, “Veronica Lodge” & Madelaine Petsch, “Cheryl Blossom”). Hear from them on stage at Spotlight Panels (included with admission!) or grab a photo or autograph (additional fees apply).

New guests are being added all the time! Check out edmontonexpo.com/guests for the latest updates.
