Kelowna Fan Xpo (KFX) March 24 & 25, 2017 at Kelowna Community Theatre
The Okanagan will be hosting its fourth, and expanded “Comic-Con” style event this coming Spring. Presented once again by New Vintage Theatre, the newly named KFX is 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 Rotary Centre For The Arts, Kelowna Community Theatre, Black Box Theatre and Okanagan Regional Library Downtown 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 Artist Alley and array of KFX Themed Vendor 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.
