The 3rd Annual Beaumont Comic-Con returns to Ford Arena on October 15, 16, and 17 with Mark KidWok Britten, Justin Nimmo, Liana Ramirez, and Steve Andreno making an appearance. Guests will enjoy an array of comics, artists, and toys for one epic expo. The event is family-friendly and welcome to all.
Comic-Con, which is short for comic convention, celebrates all mediums that have comic book traits, such as superheroes, sci-fi, horror, anime, and more. There will be vendors who stock merchandise from famous films, tv, games, anime and bands, clothing, stuffed toys, collectibles, and trading cards. Cosplay, which is short for costume play, is another interactive aspect of comic convention events.
The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau partnered with Beaumont Comic-Con to reserve a room block at the MCM Eleganté Hotel and Conference Center for those out-of-town guests coming to enjoy the event. Convention Sales Manager, Rebecca Woodland, worked with meeting organizers to secure the venue and hotel, ensuring this event to return.
“I am so delighted that this promoter has returned to Beaumont to bring this fun event to Ford Park,” states Woodland. “It was a pleasure working with this meeting planner to facilitate their venue and hotel room block bookings. Because Beaumont is so welcoming, inclusive, and affordable for both the organizer and convention attendees, I am happy to report that this repeat business has an estimated economic impact of $26,250 to our local community. Not only that, but I love that the fans have an opportunity to interact with these specialized vendors and guest artists as well as the opportunity to join in with cosplay, all within our hometown.”
Every year, Beaumont Comic-Con is extremely successful and fun with contests, intricately detailed costumes, and guests from all over southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Cash prizes for the best cosplay will be given out to adults at 4 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday for kids. Tickets can be purchased for all three days or per day online at www.ticketmaster.com or at the Ford Arena Box Office.
