The weather is Sirius-ly cruddy, but we’ve Neville been happier. The Calgary Comic Expo just announced that Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis will officially be attending this year’s event, and if that doesn’t make you feel like you won the House Cup, something must be Ron with you.

Alright, now that the puns are all out of our system, let’s get down to the gritty of it – because yes, Mr. Longbottom himself will make his Alberta debut this September and that’s something worth commemorating.

Joining other notable guests including Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Doom Patrol), Ben Barnes (Westworld, Shadow and Bone), Zachary Quinto (Heros, Star Trek) Ron Perlman (Hellboy), James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), and Roger Bumpass (the voice of Squidward), this year’s event will not be one to miss.

From meet and greets with a catalogue of voice actors, TV stars and artists, pop-culture lovers are in for one heck of a weekend of vendors, guest panels and even a red carpet all in celebration of the entertainment that brought us together when we needed it most.

Want to check it out for yourself? We’d advise that you get on it as quickly as possible!

You see, in light of recent events, the 2021 Expo is, what they’re calling, a ‘Limited Edition Event.’

This means, that in addition to familiar precautions, and a special day (September 10th) where healthcare workers can get in free, only 25,000 additional tickets will be available to the public – so you will not want to sleep on this one.

As the list of celebrity guests grows, so will interest in the event – and as we said before, this year is not going to be one that you’ll want to skip out on.

For more information or to purchase a pass, you can check out their website below. In the meantime, be safe, be kind and stay excited! It’s going to be a pretty special weekend!


When: Friday, September 10th – 12th
Where: 20 Roundup Way SE, Calgary
