CFCC's Story

Central Florida Comic Con is a pop culture, media, and comic book convention in Lakeland, Florida. CFCC was created by Ben Penrod, founder of comic cons in over ten cities, including Awesome Con in Washington, DC. Ben has lived in Central Florida since 2014 and recognized that the RP Funding Center would be the perfect location for a new comic con. CFCC is produced by Ben's company Nerd Street, which also organizes the Annapolis Comic-Con, Southern Maryland Comic-Con, and AfterBrawl NYC, and co-promotes the Alaska ComiCon. 

January 2020 Press Release


Lakeland, FL – Following a stunning success in 2019, the Central Florida Comic Con will return to the RP Funding Center on January 18 and 19, 2020. The con will combine the best of comics, pop culture, and cosplay with a number of celebrity guests. Fans of all ages are invited to join the fun with Jason David Frank (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), as well as other guests to be announced! 


“I’m so glad to be coming back to Lakeland for year two,” said Ben Penrod, president of Nerd Street LLC, which operates CFCC. “This will be a perfect weekend outing for fans and families, and I suspect many hard-working cosplayers are already planning their costumes for January.” 


For the uninitiated, Central Florida Comic Con is an event for fans of comics, toys, TV, film, art, gaming, and all other things considered ‘nerdy.’ It’s a great place to meet with actors, comic book creators, and other fans. Alongside the celebrities and artists, there will be vendors, discussion panels, and other related events taking place at the con. CFCC will also feature a costume contest each day to find the best cosplayers in Central Florida. Tickets are on sale already and start at $15 for single-day, and $30 for weekend passes.
