Every year we look forward to Fan Expo Vancouver but of course COVID has created a couple hiccups the last couple years. But this year it is finally happening, Fan Expo Vancouver is back for 2022 and our family couldn’t be more thrilled. For family day weekend Fan expo will be in full swing and there is going to be so much to see, so many people to meet, and way too many things to do 1 weekend might not be enough. PLUS at the end of this post you can enter for your chance to win a family pass to this years events.
For Families & Kids Of All Ages
No matter how big or small you are there is always a bunch of fun stuff to do no matter your age. Fan Expo Vancouver always does a great job at making sure everyone has a space to explore and not just for the adults. This year they will have a few different sections from Science demonstrations from Science World to Sorting Hat ceremonies there is no shortage of fun to be had. Of course they’ve added a few more fun stations this year you wont want to miss out on.
This year there will be a Slime Station, An epic Snow Ball Fight, Princess Sing A-longs, 3D Pen Zone, a place for Animal Crossing fans to explore AND a way for kids to create their own Super Mario Level background for the coolest picture op EVER. The kids are going to have a blast this year for sure and even I want to take part in the big Snow Ball fight!
Celebrity Autographs & Photo Ops
One of the most exciting parts for fans at Fan Expo is the opportunities they give you to meet your favorite celebrities, voice actors, artists and cosplayers. You can get your chance to say hello to some of your favorite celebs like William Shatner, Ming-Na Wen, Ryan Hurst, Jay and Silent Bob and the cast of the Trailer Park Boys this year! I am always so amazed at the incredible line up of celebrities they manage to line up each and every year and what little girl wouldn’t want to meet Mulan?! I know I do. I have loved her since the days of the Joy Luck Club – such an incredible film.
Of course if you are aiming to get a photo op with anyone my best suggestion is to get that time slot ASAP! They run out fast believe you me you don’t want to be disappointed if you are trying to buy a time the day of at the event, as it may not be a possibility.
Into Mysteries & The Paranormal
This year they will have something for all of us Vancouver history and ghost story lovers. Vancouver True Crime will be present for all of us moms who secretly love murder stories, along with Eve Lazarus. If you didn’t know Eve Lazarus is a reporter and author, and she hosts and produces the Cold Case Canada true crime podcast.
On top of that the Vancouver Paranormal Society and Vancouver Ghostly Tours will also be there. If you haven’t taken a ghostly tour of downtown Gastown with them you are truly missing out on all the spooky fun during the Fall season here in Vancouver.
Lots To Buy & Artists To Meet
There is nothing better than browsing the many isles of incredible artists that come to Fan Expo Vancouver. Being able to buy and collect some one of a kind items is one of the biggest highlights to this amazing 3 day weekend of fun.

Lots just want to meet fans and many love answering aspiring artists questions!
