Phoenix, AZ – The 6th annual FearCON festival, Arizona’s largest independent horror film festival, has expanded, becoming a two-day outdoor event for the first time. It will be held Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1-2, taking over the Fear Farm, located at 2209 N 99th Ave., in Phoenix.
“In previous years, we held FearCON at various movie theaters around the Phoenix area,” said festival director Chris McLennan. “We’ve been growing every year and expect to have our largest turnout ever in November. So we’re going outdoors. This is going to be our breakout year.”
There will also be celebrity Guests from “The Walking Dead” “Sharknado 2” and “American Horror Story.”
In addition, there will be an opportunity to work side-by-side as apprentice Paranormal Investigators, with the Crossing Over Paranormal Society (C.O.P.S.), on a project entitled “Fear Sensory Overload.”
Because FearCON will be operating outdoors for the first time, the festival needs a large canopy for the safety and comfort of attendees. “We want to take care of our precious fans, and make sure that the location is covered to protect them from too much sun, rain or wind,” he said.
Donations of any amount are welcome and discounted tickets are available for those who support this project. For a contribution of $25, backers will receive a one-day pass ($35 value) plus a FearCON sticker and poster. For a $50 donation, a two-day pass (regularly $55) is available as well as a festival sticker and poster.
A $1,000 pledge gets you a VIP weekend pass to FearCON plus a pre-show party, meals and a festival T-shirt.
“We have a lot of horror fans in the Phoenix area and we’re counting on them to help support this project,” said Chris McLennan. “You can’t really have an outdoor event in this part of the country without a canopy. Our fans can get great discounts on tickets and help fund the canopy at the same time.”
