Evansville Horror Con

It's no secret that horror movies rarely get the recognition they deserve from mainstream pop culture, but it's safe to say fans of horror showed up and showed that the horror-loving community is alive and well in Evansville!

Back in March 2023, the National Guard Armory on Evansville's east side was home to the first-ever Horror Con.  A horror-themed convention put on by the same folks who bring Raptor Con to Evansville every year.  Horror Con brought all kinds of spooky vendors selling everything from books to dioramas to horror-themed artwork and much more.  They also had panels, special effects workshops, photo ops, and of course celebrity guests. It was such a huge success that Horror Con will not only be back in 2024, but it will be even BIGGER!
