Fan Expo Dallas 2018 presents ‘Back To The Future,’ ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘The Princess Bride’ reunions and more pop culture fun

In the heart of downtown Dallas, Fan Expo HQ, one of the largest entertainment convention groups in North America, is bringing back its annual comic con, Fan Expo Dallas. Comic cons are fantastic times for geeks and nerds. Meeting strangers who love the same fandoms as you. Seeing just how committed cosplayers are. Standing awkwardly in long lines for a guest panel, while looking down at your phone and overhearing other people talk about a TV show or movie you like (or dislike). Getting photo ops taken with your favorite stars. What is there not to love, y’all?

This year’s Fan Expo Dallas includes many fandom reunions like the cast of Back To The Future, Stranger Things, The Princess Bride, Star Wars, and much more! The comic con in Dallas is packed with exciting family-friendly activities and will take place in the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center next weekend, April 6-8, 2018.
