FANFEST is the newest addition to the roster of Gulf Coast "ComicCon" events. Sponsored by the Hancock County Library System (HCLS), FANFEST is an annual celebration of all things pop culture. It's a "Mini Con" or "Library Con," essentially like a ComicCon event/expo, but on a smaller scale and all on one day!

The event has scheduled exhibitors from New Orleans & Baton Rouge to Mobile (AL) and beyond. Get ready for a dedicated gaming space, special guest presenters, a cosplay contest, and an expo hall where you can meet creators and performers for every fandom. Uncle Joe’s Pizza & Wings will be on hand for food and drinks. Event giveaways available while supplies last, so get there early and stay all day! A cosplay costume judging and parade is planned for 3 p.m.

Opportunities are available for Volunteers, and for Sponsorship of the FANFEST event/expo. Contact the Hancock County Library System for details at 228-467-5282.
