COSPLAY MEETUPS

From Star Wars and Doctor Who to House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings, FAN EXPO Boston will feature Sci-fi & Fantasy themed Cosplay Meetups all weekend long. Meet like-minded fans, celebrate all things Sci-fi & Fantasy, and snap a picture to remember. Watch for a schedule of specific fandom meetups closer to the show.

PANELS, DEMOS, AND WORKSHOPS

Do you love The Shire or want to debate the layout of the Rocinante versus Serenity? Then, you won't want to miss our sci-fi and fantasy programming. There's something for everyone with discussions, debates, and fan-tastic celebrity panels. 

LIGHTSABER BATTLES

If you're trained in the ways of the Force, join in the chaos of combat as you test your skills with our Lightsaber Battles. Everyone is welcome to join in as we quest for the Chosen One in this full contact battle of (safe) sabers. Padawan Battles will be open to warriors 12 years of age and younger.

PADAWAN TRAININGS

Is the Force strong with you? We're calling all Padawans and younglings (ages 6-15) to join in on an interactive lightsaber training experience hosted by your local Jedi Masters.
