You are invited to be a part of one of the newest Fandom Convention – Fangaea!  This multi-faceted, action-packed, fandom event will feature Comic books, Table Top and Video Games, Anime, Steam Punk, Cosplay, Technology, Fun Panels, and so much more!

Fangaea (fan-JEE-uh) is a multi-faceted, action-packed, fandom event that will feature Table Top and Video Games, Anime, Steampunk, Cosplay, Technology, Virtual Reality, Fun Panels, Model Building and so much more!  Fangaea is Where Fandoms Join Forces for Fun!

Do not miss the return of this event, what is the most exciting event of the fall! Happening for the second-time ever on September 14-15, 2019 at the Scottish Rite Event Center in San Diego, expect an extraordinary experience featuring a plethora of panels ranging from breaking into industry and hands on DIY, to a special cerebral line up of panel discussions.

There will be gaming, tournaments, cosplay fashion shows, musicians, vendors, unique apparel, fandom merchandise, and other special surprises!

The Fangaea (fan-JEE-uh) concept started in late 2016 as just an idea between a few friends who are big fans of subcultures and the cons that go with it.  After being bitten by a radioactive bat-spider, the idea began to turn into reality when more people got interested in being a part of this idea and making something great and fun for fans of all different worlds.  “Let’s bring all the different worlds together,” like a super-continent of  fandoms…and so Fangaea was born.

Stay tuned as we share more fun – keep checking back at www.fangaea.us and www.facebook.com/fangaeacon
