Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Convention

Flashback Weekend

Chicago Horror Con

August 2-4, 2024

Hyatt Regency O'Hare Chicago
Rosemont, IL




Flashback Weekend believes that a Horror Convention should support the film industry that gives us the horror films that we love. Our philanthropic efforts are dedicated to Big Screen Theatrical Exhibition, preservation of the American Drive-In, and 35mm film presentations. All net proceeds from Flashback Weekend go to the operation and preservation of the Flashback Weekend owned and operated Midway Drive-In located in Dixon, IL. Flashback Weekend screens classic Horror Film Festivals at the Midway throughout the season, in addition to first-run films.

Please visit us at the Midway Drive-In and see for yourself what you have helped us to achieve! www.themidwaydrivein.net.


Please note that “MIDWAY DRIVE-IN” will appear on your receipts and on-line credit card statements for Flashback Weekend ticket purchases.

You must have your printed ticket with barcode or smart device so that the QR code can be scanned at the registration booth at time of entry. Be sure to bring a photo ID when you pick up your tickets. The name on the ID must match the name on the ticket order.

We ask that everyone attend for the entire convention experience, not just one specific celebrity guest.
