Wizard World Announces 2017 Convention Dates and Cities

So Wizard World released their list of confirmed 2017 dates. There are only sixteen shows on the list, and while it’s still possible they can add more, it’s certainly a much shorter list than, say, 2015’s list of 25 different events. The confirmed 2017 events are as follows:

New Orleans, January 6-8
Portland, February 17-19
Cleveland, March 17-19
St. Louis, April 7-9
Minneapolis, May 5-7
Des Moines, May 19-21
Philadelphia, June 1-4
Sacramento, June 16-18
Albuquerque, July 14-16
Columbus, August 4-6
Orlando, August 11-13
Chicago, August 24-27
Nashville, Sept. 8-10
Madison, September 22-24
Oklahoma City, October 27-29
Austin, Nov. 17-19

Most of these are pretty unsurprising, though we didn’t expect some shows (like Minneapolis) to make the cut for next year. The Madison, WI show has also been moved from the spring to the fall, which will alleviate a pretty crowded convention season in Wisconsin.
