It seems just like yesterday that we were covering our very first fan convention in Lexington, KY. The 2015 Lexington Comic & Toy Convention was truly a memorable event, not only for it’s stunning atmosphere, but for taking a chance on us to dutifully cover their event. It was also a chance for us to get our feet wet in the wild world of being an independent, media outlet. And now, going on seven years later, we are continuing that passion of covering such events and then some. With the global pandemic appearing to finally recede – the 2022 convention season is in full swing and thus allowing fans of pop culture to once again gather in various convention centers around the world. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, words can’t fully describe the feelings of pure joy that these in person conventions are back.
With that being said, below are the two upcoming fan conventions that we here at Stay2uned will be covering. Also posted will be a website with the most up to date roster of conventions scheduled for 2022.
Upcoming Fan Conventions (As of March 26, 2022):
1.) FAN EXPO Philadelphia > April 8-10, 2022 @ the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Formally the convention known as Wizard World Philadelphia. Join us for the inaugural fan convention as it joins the already amazing and vetted FAN EXPO roster.

2.) QFX East > May 13 -15, 2022 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown. A truly one of a kind LGBTQ fan convention that celebrates all colors of the rainbow.

There is also a virtual option as well – which is perhaps one of the best things to come out of the global pandemic.
With that being said and as promised, here is the website that has the most updated roster of in person fan conventions from all around the world. https://fancons.com/events/.
