Charity and Fan Costume Groups
Since 2006, Phoenix Fan Fusion (nee Phoenix Cactus Comicon) has donated exhibit space to local non-profit costuming groups. Beginning with only the Dune Sea Garrison in 2006, Phoenix Fan Fusion will feature over a dozen costuming groups in 2022.
These groups volunteer at children’s hospitals, appear at charity events, and host fundraisers for charitable causes. We are proud to host these groups each year and look forward to the elaborate displays and entertainment they bring.
All Charity and Fan Costume Groups are in the Lower Level Exhibitor Hall & Hall of Heroes (Hall 6).
