When: Fri., Feb. 20 2015
After months of anticipation, it's finally here. This weekend, the Cleveland Convention Center is transforming into Wizard World Cleveland, a celebration of pop culture, movies, graphic novels, cosplay, comics, television, sci-fi, toys, gaming, original art, collectibles and more. The list of celebrities and comics creators is too long to list here, but highlights include celebrities like William Shatner, Bruce Campbell, Ian Somerhalder, Billy Boyd, Karen Gillian, Joey Lauren Adams, James Marsters, Corey Feldman, Seth Gilliam, Michael Rowe, Jason David Frank and the WWE's Paige and Cleveland's own Dolph Ziggler. Wizard World isn't cheap, but your overall cost will depend on how "rich" of an experience you want. Three-day passes have sold out. Admission is $35 on Friday from 3 to 8 p.m., $45 on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and $40 on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. VIP tickets and special packages are available at premium prices.
