Orlando, FAN EXPO Boston, and FAN EXPO Canada, all of which attract upwards of 130,000 fans each weekend. “The Bay Area hasn’t had a fan experience like this for some years, if ever, so we’re delighted to finally reveal FAN EXPO San Francisco – a show we’re committed to growing with the community for years to come.”
FAN EXPO San Francisco will offer attendees unparalleled one-of-a-kind experiences and engaging attractions for fans of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, gaming and more.

“Shows like FAN EXPO San Francisco become annual highlights in the calendar for fans of all ages and vendors of all kinds – our fans plan costumes, reunite with friends, and come from all over to experience the community and creativity,” said Moyes. “Now, more than ever, we’re proud to provide inclusive, welcoming spaces for people to come together, meet each other, and express their passions.”
