Horror on Main 2024 The Convention Returns with Big Changes

Horror on Main weekend convention is returning June 28-30, 2024. The inaugural event was deemed a successful first year convention and received much praise from guests, vendors, and attendees alike.

In need of an updated venue, Horror on Main has relocated the weekend event to the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel at 4650 Lindle Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17111. The new location offers the Harrisburg International Airport, as well as both Hersheypark and Chocolate World, within ten miles of the venue. The Sheraton is beyond thrilled to be housing the event and plan to join the fun by creating a horror themed menu, decorating the hotel, and having staff dress in costumes.

Other changes the team decided on for year two and beyond include the addition of a food truck, a costume contest, and professional photo ops with several of the celebrity guests of honor. Photo ops, general admission tickets, and hotel reservations are all available via the Horror on Main website, as well as the guest list as they are announced and other information.

But what is Horror on Main? It is a new convention giving the old genre a twist. Rather than throwing horror celebrities into a room without rhyme or reason, Horror on Main examines the genre as it moves from fiction to film and back again. The actors have appeared in film or television roles based on a book, comic, or video game, or are perhaps themselves an author. Likewise, the authors have had their work adapted to screen, comic, or game. Horror on Main includes poets, nonfiction, and screenwriters among the authors, and doesn’t forget those behind the scenes, such as directors, FX, composers, cover artists, voices, publishers, etc.

Horror on Main strives to bring the feeling of community back to the horror community through their programming, layout, and attitude. Providing creature comforts and a truly safe place for fans and creators alike, Horror on Main cares about everyone who walks in the door and appreciates all parts of the community it seeks to celebrate.

Horror on Main is a woman-owned weekend convention celebrating and exploring all shadows of the genre as it crosses media platforms from fiction to film, comics to games, and back again.
