Flashback Weekend is an annual horror convention based in Rosemont, Illinois - a stone's throw from O'Hare International Airport and just a few minutes north of Chicago.
Flashback Weekend features a huge Dealer's Room where you can find all kinds of collectibles, original arts & crafts, posters, DVDs, CDs, prints, photos, toys, masks, t-shirts, jewelry and tons more horror, sci fi, fantasy and similar genre merchandise.
Flashback Weekend also features an array of celebrity guests who will sign autographs, pose for photos, participate in Q & A's and, in some cases, introduce their work and interact with convention attendees.
Flashback Weekend has a variety of activities every year including movie screenings, performances from local Chicago horror-centric acts, a costume contest hosted by Chicago's own Svengoolie, the Zombie Pinups Beauty Pageant, celebrity meet-and-greet events and more.
Flashback Weekend also holds several associated events throughout the year at the Midway Drive In and other locations.
