Wizard World comic convention tour adds Tulsa

by Matthew Price Published: September 17, 2013

TULSA — The Wizard World series of comics and pop culture conventions expands to 15 locations in 2014, and the tour will close out with its first-ever Oklahoma stop.  Wizard World Tulsa is scheduled for Nov. 7-9, 2014.

Tulsa joins two other shows in the region; new show Wizard World San Antonio is scheduled for Aug. 1-3 and the returning Wizard World Austin moves up in the calendar to Oct. 11-12.

The Tulsa show is set for the Cox Business Center.

“Our mantra has been, ‘Give the fans a great experience, give the celebrities and creators a great experience, take care of our exhibitors and everyone will want to come back,’” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO and Chairman in a news release.  “We have had such an overwhelmingly positive reaction to all our 2013 events, both first-year and existing shows, that it was obvious what the fans were telling us – ‘We want more!’”

There are three remaining Wizard World Comic Cons in 2013: Columbus, Ohio (Sept. 20-22); Nashville, Tenn. (Oct. 18-20); and Austin, Texas (Nov. 22-24).
