Phoenix Comicon is a convention & expo that celebrates Fandom and pop culture. This year's features include pop culture actors, top comic book writers & artists, programming, exhibitors, costuming, and more. Prepare to Celebrate your Fandom!
Phoenix Comicon brings your favorite movie and TV stars, comic book authors and artists, pop culture icons, and fandom celebrities right to you. Guest panels give you an opportunity to hear our guests talk about past, current, and upcoming projects, interact with their co-stars, and answer questions from the audience. Our guests also schedule time either before or after panels for photo ops and autographs for an additional fee. Photos and autographs are usually sold on a limited basis to accommodate the actor’s schedule, so be sure to buy yours early. Many of our guests stay through the weekend, but some are only here for one day, so make sure you plan your schedule around their appearances.
There are so many activities and panels at Phoenix Comicon that we couldn’t possibly list them all. In fact, you’ll probably find that you can’t see everything you want to see in one day. That's why we offer full event passes so you can stay all weekend. Onsite you will find our printed programming guide which offers a complete schedule of events.
Activities include competitions and trivia games, kids’ activities, celebrity guest appearances, costume contests, a masquerade ball, and discussion panels where you can learn from and interact with local and national experts and enthusiasts on a whole host of topics. Our programs for next year will be announced soon.
Phoenix Comicon is on all three floors of the Phoenix Convention Center North Building, most of the West Building, & in the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Seeing everything requires a lot of walking and it will be hot outside. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle. The Skybridge between the North and West buildings will be open to help you stay out of the heat. Please, no stopping or loitering on the bridge.
Many of our attendees like to stay late for our evening programming, meet up at one of the many downtown hot spots, attend our hosted parties, and start early in the morning. Don't miss out! Stay downtown where the action is. We will have special hotel rates in our host hotels soon.
Schedules may change. You’ll find that meeting new friends and getting lost in the sea of awesome that is Phoenix Comicon will mean that your experience simply cannot be anticipated. Go with the flow and leave room for spontaneity.
Expect to have more fun than you ever imagined. Whether it’s bouncing around the Exhibitor Hall for hours, debating who would win in a fight between Darth Vader and Batman, or getting a chance to meet your favorite celebrity, Phoenix Comicon offers opportunities for fun at every turn! Seek out new experiences and explore a wide range of programming and events. This kind of fun only comes once a year!
