What there is to know about Phoenix Fan Fest

It’s my first time at Phoenix Fan Fest. What Should I Expect?

Phoenix Fan Fest is a celebration of comics, creators, and collectibles. We focus on local creators and artists to showcase the finest talent in the area, but welcome artists and authors from around the country. Phoenix Fan Fest offers a fantastic display of exhibitors with pop culture, geek, mainstream, and hard-to-find items.  Get the chance to meet your favorite TV and film stars!  Come for a day, or come for the weekend. There’s plenty to do.

Dress the Part

Cosplay and costuming are central to most comic conventions and Phoenix Fan Fest welcomes cosplayers of all kinds. From novice to expert to professional, costumes are a big part of our shows. You should expect to see lots of popular characters from comic books, movies, and TV shows. Phoenix Fan Fest is a family-friendly show so we have specific rules about costumes. Safety of all our attendees is important to us, so we also have safety practices that limit some costuming props. Be sure to visit our policy pages before you dress up.

I can meet WHO!?!

Phoenix Fan Fest brings your favorite comic book authors and writers, movie and TV stars, pop culture icons, and fandom celebrities right to you. Guest panels give you an opportunity to hear our guests talk about past, current, upcoming projects, and sometimes answer questions from the audience.
