Everything You Need to Know About Phoenix Fan Fest 2017
Benjamin Leatherman, Phoenix New Times
As the name implies, Phoenix Fan Fest is geared toward fandom — meaning a love of anything having to do with comic books, costumes, cartoons, collectibles, and characters.
All this geeky subject matter will be celebrated at the two-day event, which takes place on Saturday, November 11, and Sunday, November 12, at the Phoenix Convention Center.
It will also feature celebrities, cosplayers, and comic artists alike, not to mention a seriously nerdy vibe.
In short, it’s a massive geek-fest, very much in the same spirit as its sister event, Phoenix Comicon.
Fan Fest is put on by local company Square Egg Entertainment, the folks who also produce Comicon each year. But according to spokesperson Kristin Rowan, Fan Fest is a different sort of animal.
