We’re Imaginarium and our love for comic books, stories, art, and pop-culture is boundless. Since 2010, we have run comic conventions (Tampa Bay Comic Convention, Indiana Comic Convention, San Francisco Comic Convention, Atlanta Comic Convention, Michigan Comic Convention)!
Held in the heart of downtown Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center, Indiana Comic Convention is Indiana’s largest comic con and has become one of the midwest’s premier pop-culture conventions. With a 2018 attendance of 55,100 unique attendees, Indiana Comic Convention is currently our highest attended convention. There was never any question that the Hoosiers wanted a comic con to call their own, as Indiana Comic Convention debuted (in 2014) with an approximate attendance of 20,000, and has grown every successive year. The convention runs August 30th-September 1st.
