Phoenix Fan Fest Canceled Indefinitely
Convention season is over for most Phoenix locals. There are a few smaller cons like Sabaton and Game On Expo that are left to fill the shoes of Fall’s Phoenix Fan Fest, there isn’t much left to do for comic and cosplay fans in the Valley. Last month, Phoenix Comic Fest… I mean, Phoenix Fan Fest… I mean, Phoenix Fan Fusion…Wait, what was I saying? Oh, yeah, there was an announcement by Square Egg Entertainment, the company behind the conventions about the Fall con being canceled.
“Phoenix Fan Fest, traditionally held in October or November, has struggled over the years to find its own identity, audience, balance of price, size, and offerings, and community support,” the company said in a written statement.
“It is not for lack of love of our fans, but in the best interest of the future of all our shows that we have decided not to host Phoenix Fan Fest 2018.”
The cancellation leaves Square Egg Entertainment with three main events: Phoenix Fan Fusion, Minnesota Fan Fusion and Vegas Fan Fusion.
