Phoenix Fan Fusion has postponed its January 2022 event due to the delta variant of the coronavirus.

After several postponements throughout the pandemic, the typically annual multi-genre fan convention that attracts thousands of comic book, sci-fi, fantasy and pop culture enthusiasts to downtown Phoenix was ultimately unable to host an event in either 2020 or 2021.

Earlier this year, organizers announced that they had set their sights on Jan. 14-16, 2022, for the next convention. They have now pushed that date back to May 27-29, 2022, which is Memorial Day weekend. The event is still slated to take place at Phoenix Convention Center.
