Medicine Hat Fan Roundup

Newly known to me this week is the Medicine Hat Fan Roundup event taking place this weekend on Saturday, June 23rd from 10am-10pm at the Medicine Hat College (F Wing). The entrance fee is $5, but kids under 11 get in free! So what exactly is the Medicine Hat Fan Roundup? Well, it’s a bunch of different things focusing on everything from anime, to board games, to retro gaming and more. It’s a pretty interesting/surprising mix of geek culture taking place in Medicine Hat. Best of all? Sushi Hat is catering for the event! From the Facebook page:

Medicine Hat’s own Fan Convention. A one day Expo in Medicine Hat for Fans of Fantasy, Sci-fi, Comics, Video Games, RPG, Card Games, Steampunk, Anime and Manga !
