2021 Illinois Events

February 6, 2021

 - American Hauntings Annual Dead Of Winter  (Alton, IL)
Join American Hauntings for the 23rd Annual Dead of Winter Event! Celebrate ghosts, hauntings, folklore, and legends — while supporting a great cause of helping to feed the hungry in the region! We’ll be doing things a little different this year — due to the issues caused by the ongoing pandemic - but we’ll still be offering a fun day and some eerie After Hours events. You’ll have the chance to be chilled by presentations on ghosts, hauntings, and the unexplained; meet speakers and authors; browse the vendor room; and experience the most fun you’ll have all winter!

April 9-11, 2021

 - 2021 Days of the Dead: Chicago  (Des Plaines, IL)
DAYS OF THE DEAD's primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming social gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another "pay-and-go" autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene. Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hours scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, DAYS OF THE DEAD is rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.

2021 Non-Illinois Events

January 19-21, 2021

 - Halloween and Party Expo with Hauntcon  (Virtual Event)
Today we are sharing the difficult decision that the upcoming Halloween & Party Expo, scheduled to take place January 22-24, 2021 in Dallas, Texas as well as the co-located HAuNTcon event will now pivot to a virtual event for the Halloween, party, celebration and haunt community. We continue to put the health, safety and wellbeing of our team, customers, partners, family and friends above all other priorities and those values remain most important to us. In light of both governmental direction and general public health advisories a face-to-face event will not be possible with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government issued State of Disaster in Texas
