The convention will mark the third iteration of 90s Con in the U.S. and the first to be held in Florida. Organizers expect the event to draw at least 15,000 pop culture fans.
“90s Con will bring stars from your favorite 90s shows such as ‘90210,’ ‘Full House,’ ‘Charmed,’ ‘Saved by the Bell’ and many more to the city of Tampa,” the City of Tampa shared in a press release Sept. 12. The weekend will include a 30-year reunion for the cast of “Boy Meets World” and the “biggest reunion ever” for the cast of “90210.”
The majority of the show’s original principal cast will be in attendance, including Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestly, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering.
In addition to 90s TV mainstays like Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Melissa Joan Hart, Mario Lopez, Trina McGee, Rider Strong, Jodi Sweetin and more, voiceover artists will also feature.
Guests include Disney Legend Jodi Benson, the original voice of “The Little Mermaid” who reflected on the film’s LGBTQ+ legacy with Watermark last year, and other princesses. Fans will be able to interact with Paige O’Hara, who voiced Belle in the original “Beauty and the Beast”; Linda Larkin, Jasmine in “Aladdin”; Judy Kuhn, the titular “Pocahontas” and Susan Egan, who voiced both Megara in “Hercules” and played Belle in “Beauty and the Beast” on Broadway.
90s Con also promises “there will be appearances by the biggest stars of 90s music.”
That includes Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and AJ McLean, who won “RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race” last year as Poppy Love, as well as *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone. T-Boz and Chilli from TLC round out the announced musical guests.
Fatone and McLean will also partner for a “Welcome to Tampa 90s Party” Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. at the Tampa Theatre. The show is sold out but more details are available here.
