4 Arizona 2013 Geek Conventions You May Want To Get Passes To This Week


There’s just something magical about the new year… that tends to bump up convention prices.

So if you want your 2013 to be filled with colorful characters, endless nerd jabber, and a few of your favorite geek icons, I highly suggest grabbing tickets/memberships/passes to the following before this week ends:

TaiyoCon 2013

I suggest picking up badges to TaiyoCon 2013 this week for two reasons, actually. One, because prices will increase quite a bit, and two, because it’s only a few weeks away, you slacker! You’re almost out of time to finish your Eva Unit 001 cosplay!

TaiyoCon 2013 rocks the Hilton Phoenix East in Mesa on January 4-6. Only $35 (until the end of the year).

Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2013

I couldn’t find anything about prices increasing, but AACC is also only a month away. This newer convention is moving into the Phoenix Convention Center this year, as well as bringing in Stan Lee, so be prepared to drop $50 for the weekend.

Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2013 wanders into Phoenix Jan 25 – 27.

Wild Wild West Con 2013

Well yippie kay yay, it’s a steampunk convention! Securing tickets to this one isn’t as urgent, but still worth mentioning. Pricing only bumps up $5 on Jan 2nd, but if you’re into the niche there’s no reason not to get them early. I have heard nothing but good about this convention in years past.

Wild Wild West Con 2013 airships into Old Tucson March 8 – 10. Fans of goggle wearing should also be prepared to pay $54.90 (kinda random) for a weekend of steam.

Phoenix Comicon 2013

Time to get your memberships and get your hotel rooms! A full weekend of maximum geekery at the biggest nerd event of the year ’round these parts is only $40 until the end of the year. I blog for these guys, so stick around to stay up to date on Phoenix Comicon shenanigans.

Phoenix Comicon 2013 slams into The Phoenix Convention Center on May 23 – 26 (Memorial Day Weekend).
