It’s Not Just Fandom. It’s Family. 

Fan Fest events let attendees embrace their darker side and immerse themselves in the horror and sci-fi shows they love. Having Walker Stalker across the hall from Heroes & Villains offers a whole other fandom to engage with, for the price of one ticket.

“This was my first time attending any convention.My favorite memory would definitely have to be getting a piggyback ride from Stephen Amell! He was so silly about it and even after our Photo Op was over, he kept me on his back and starting bending all the way over to the point I had a death grip on him. Then Emily Bett Rickards started saying ‘Squats, squats!’ And of course, Stephen then started doing some squats (all while I was still on his back) before he finally said ‘Oops sorry, my bad!’ And dropped me back to the ground and gave me a hug. Definitely a memory I will never forget.”

 “My favorite part of Fan Fest Portland was the incredible Stranger Things set! You could sit on the coach, and someone would push in the wallpaper just like the creatures in the show. It was so creepy! The best part? It was free – a major plus when you have six kids to keep happy!

“My absolute favorite moment was meeting Emily Bett Rickards. It seriously felt like we’d been friends forever. She was so silly and chill. We kept cracking jokes while she signed my poster, and I was practically cry-laughing by the time I left her line. Heroes & Villains really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’m so grateful I went!”

“Portland has so many incredible artists! So, of course, the Artist Alley at Fan Fest Portland didn’t disappoint! My favorites were the tiny Studio Ghibli paintings, and the wood carved Star Wars figures!

“Jamie Chung was probably the sweetest, most genuine celebrity I’ve ever met! I’m kind of a big, awkward dude, and when I walked up to her table she threw her arms around me and hugged me like an old friend. She made my entire weekend (heck, maybe year!) amazing.”

“There was the most amazing cosplay at Fan Fest Portland! I even saw a Mary Poppins Yondu in line to meet Michael Rooker! Michael loved it and asked him how he’d made his fin, and about all the details of his costume. I couldn’t stop giggling, it was amazing!
