Fayetteville’s Celebration Of Pop Culture Everything Cool And Geeky!
The fan-run Fayetteville Comic Con is a welcoming and family friendly place that celebrates all forms and fans of American and World Popular Culture. If you like comics, cosplay, gaming, collectible toys, anime, cool tv or movies, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead and/or Horror, you’ll fit right in!
On one very special weekend -- Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21, 2018 -- we will cram in as much fun and activities as we can...we have tried many new things, some never seen before at cons, have learned from our triumphs and mistakes and promise this year's con will be the best ever!
The con will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Crown Center Exhibition Center. We advise coming early and also buying tickets in advance to avoid lines the day of the show and a possible sellout. Plus you'll get a discount for buying early! However, we assure you that every box office at the Crown Center will be open the day of the show to minimize lines.
Active military will get a discount on advance ticket purchases and children 10 & under are admitted free to the Fayetteville Comic Con if accompanied by a paying adult.
Our con will feature special guests from the world of comics and popular culture; MtG, Heroclix, Yu-Go-Oh and video game tournaments; panels; portfolio reviews; trivia contests; martial arts and swordplay demonstrations; door prizes; photo ops; free comics or packs of non-sports cards to everybody (while supplies last); and TWO BIG COSPLAY CONTESTS -- A JUNIOR DIVISION AND SENIOR DIVISION, with prizes galore, including one for best Active Military entrant.
Did we forget to mention SCIFI Speed Dating, Nerd Slams, and aerialists?
DJ Clash from Winston Salem will be spinning tunes and keeping things moving along. He was a big hit last year -- where else than the FCC will you see a dozen Deadpools or Harley Quinns dancing in sync?
SPECIAL APPEARANCES BY TV AND FILM ACTORS:
Candy Man, Candy Man, Candy Man! Watch out Fayetteville! But, gosh, Mr. Todd (we're not calling him Tony until he gives us the OK) has also been in The Rock, Platoon, Star Trek and has done the voices of Zoom on The Flash and Fallen on Transformers. We are honored to host Tony -- oops, Mr. Todd -- at the October Fayetteville Comic Con.
Butch is best known as playing the iconic Eddie Munster on the Classic TV show The Munsters, but he also starred on the popular but bizarre Lidsville kids show and knew both The Beatles and The Monkees! Best of all, Butch will be bringing The Munsters Show cars -- Drag-U-LA and the Munster Coach -- to Fayetteville, plus lots of original props from the show -- this is MUST SEE part of our con!
A true Horror Superstar, Tom has had an amazing career as an actor, director, special effects maven, and stuntman. He's worked on Dawn of the Dead, directed the Night of The Living Dead remake, and had a great role as Sex Machine in one of our favorite movies, From Dusk to Dawn. We are really excited to be hosting Tom in October!
