We are 2 days away from the premiere pop-culture convention in Arizona, Phoenix Fan Fusion (formerly Phoenix Comic Con)! We’re talking about an event so big that it engulfs Downtown Phoenix in geek. That is the entirety of the Phoenix Convention Center along with its exterior. Join Bookmans May 23 – 26, 2019 as we geek out in the lobby at BOOTH L9 and keep kids entertained in the Bookmans-sponsored Youth Art Room!

One of our favorite parts of Phoenix Fan Fusion is that the convention doesn’t end just because the exhibitor hall closes. Let us share a few of our favorite panels, parties, and experiences.

There are a diverse number of events for those who enjoy the nightlife, including “Queen Lantern Corps Dragstravaganza,” “Cards & Creators: KNTR Creators Mixer & Poker Tournament,” “Hogwarts Prom,” and the “DC vs. Marvel Superhero Showdown Presented by Blue Ribbon Army” which benefits Kids Need to Read.

Throwback to 2010
If gaming is more your style, you can check out Game On Expo as they host retro and modern gaming tournaments all weekend long. Do not fear, we haven’t forgotten about the tabletop fans! The Arizona Game Fair will host open tabletop gaming in the 2nd Floor West open gaming library. And we have Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh and KeyForge Card Gaming Hosted by Amazing Discoveries.

If your family needs a place to relax, stop by the Youth Art Room where Bookmans Mesa will be handing out free books and comics to kids all weekend long. Meet Book Man on Saturday, May 25th at from 12:00 to 2:00 PM during storytimes and grab a selfie with him! Youth programming also has crafts, books, coloring, and special activities going on all day for kids and families.
