Kelowna Fan XPO

A "comic con" style event showcasing the best of comics, manga, Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror, gaming, movies and more. All taking place in the central Okanagan.

The Okanagan will be hosting its third, and expanded “Comic-Con” style event this coming Spring. Presented once again by New Vintage Theatre, the newly named KFX will be an annual event that will transport the interior of BC to a world of comics, manga/anime, Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror, gaming, movies, and more. This year the Kelowna Community Theatre will be playing host to this unique show.

The KCT stage will feature celebrity guests, panels, Q/A’s, live performance and experiences you won’t find anywhere else. Attendees will also be able to peruse the exciting array of booths presented by established and emerging talent from the world of fan-culture. Needless to say, many are expected to attend in costume and take part in the “KFX Cosplay Contest”, with the potential to win fantastic prizes.

As was the cast last year, Kelowna’s John Delaney, artist for graphic novels of The Simpsons as well as past artist behind Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Scooby Doo, will be one of the many prominent artists featured at this year’s festival. The event is designed to be an all ages experience that will encompass many areas of The Okanagan’s vibrant artistic community.

Teasers for the event will be regularly posted on KelownaFX.com, also through Twitter™ and Facebook™. Stay tuned as the entertainment lineup, specials guests, exhibitors and sponsors are revealed over the course of the next few months.

KFX 2016 will take place on March 18 & 19, 2016 at The Kelowna Community Theatre. The Black Box Theatre, Rotary Centre For The Arts and Okanagan Regional Library – Downtown Kelowna Branch  will also host featured events, artists & exhibitors.
