“More than just a comic con, more than just a festival, Big Adventure really is a one-of-a-kind celebration of pop culture and fandom in all forms,” says Big Adventure co-producer Rob Tweedie. “I’ve waited in my fair share of comic con lines over the years, sometimes even overnight. I love the tangible, face-to-face fan experience and the freedom to be yourself that the cons offer. Our goal is to combine that great sense of wonder and community with the excitement and energy of an outdoor festival to create an authentic entertainment event that is truly unique and out-of-this-world. Big Adventure has been a passion project for us at SGE for a while and we’re buzzing with excitement to see it come to life with all of you.”
