After a three-year pause for the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Fan Fusion is back in downtown Phoenix for Memorial Day weekend.

The three-day event, Phoenix’s largest comic con, takes place May 27-29 at the Phoenix Convention Center. It’s a celebration of pop culture including comics, cosplay, movies, anime, manga, furry and countless other fandoms.

Celebrities scheduled to attend include Chuck Norris, Diane Guerrero, Cristina Vee, Doug Jones and Patrick Warburton.

We’ll be updating this blog all weekend long with photographs and highlights from opening day Friday morning to the afterparties of Fan Fusion.

4:45 p.m. Sunday: Last chance for souvenirs

Sunday seemed slower than Saturday at Phoenix Fan Fusion, but the exhibition hall on the bottom floor of the convention center was getting plenty of action.

Megan Withey, an artist from West Palm Beach, Florida, sold paintings at Phoenix Fan Fusion on May 29, 2022.

That’s where everyone headed for last-minute purchases on their way out the door.

Fans could get autographs and photos with celebrities, authors and speakers, and hundreds of booths had goodies for purchase.

Pins, comic books, light sabers, buttons, sword hair clips and famous movie and cartoon figurines were up for grabs throughout the hall. Customers and vendors were making most of the final hours of the con.
