Fan Fest Chicago: Ready For Some Con-Fusion!

Fan Fest Chicago Brings Walker Stalker and Heroes & Villains to the windy city. For the first time, these two conventions come together for an incredible fan meet-up on March 25-26 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

Fan Fest: Pop Culture Personified

Fan Fest, a leading convention and entertainment news brand in North America, holds shows throughout the world. Under the Fan Fest umbrella lies two ever-expanding conventions, Heroes and Villains Fan Fest (HVFF) and Walker Stalker Con (WSC) . HVFF is geared toward fans of superheroes and villains while WSC aims at those those with a love of zombies and horror. I am thrilled to attend this epic mingling of genres! The array of cosplay costumes alone will be worth the price of admission. Fan Fest gives a truly one-of-a-kind experience and Chicago will be no exception.

A Feast At The Fest

Fans of The Walking Dead, Arrow, Gotham, Sons of Anarchy and more have the opportunity to meet their favorite stars at the upcoming Fan Fest. Offering something for everyone, it is easy to see how these events continue to grow. More than 30 of your favorite actors will speak to the audience, meet fans, pose for photos and sign autographs.

Windy City Awaits

Be sure to grab your tickets at either website: Walker Stalker Con or Heroes & Villains Fan Fest. I also recommend using the site to pre-purchase any desired photo-op to avoid chance of sell-out. If possible, pick up your passes onsite Friday to avert waiting in line over weekend. Follow them on social media for the latest updates.
