As the pandemic comes to a close, America is reopening its restaurants, businesses, theme parks, concerts and special events…and one of the biggest entertainment events in the country will take place right here in San Antonio: Celebrity Fan Fest!
Celebrity Fan Fest is a pop culture event held annually by our sister company, PMX Events, and this Texas comic con has scored a major victory by securing Star Wars royalty! Ewan McGregor, also known as ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ is making his first appearance at any pop culture fan festival ever! On top of that talent line-up victory, the 2021 Celebrity Fan Fest has also secured Hayden Christensen who played Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the Star Wars prequels. Both actors are appearing at Celebrity Fan Fest during its 10-day run Friday July 30th through Sunday August 8th. They will be appearing the first weekend only. Dates and event information can be seen at www.CelebrityFanFest.com. The event will take place at Six Flags Fiesta Texas since the Freeman Expo Halls were not available this year.
Now PMX Events Founder Bob Wills has all the comic cons in America talking about the incredible line-up they have already secured for this year’s show. In addition to McGregor and Christensen, he has secured the stars of the new CW Network hit series ‘Superman & Lois’, several Marvel stars, and other DC stars too! If early sales are any indicator, this show will be a major success.
“We have fans coming to San Antonio from over 30 U.S. states already, from international locales as well. The data from our ecommerce site reveals the popularity of Celebrity Fan Fest nationally,” Bob Wills stated. “We have never seen such demand in our brief 4-year history. We may have started something wonderful for the San Antonio tourism industry,” Wills added. Celebrity Fan Fest was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic like every other show in America.
PMX Events is a sister company of The PM Group. Celebrity Fan Fest was the first event PMX ever held, and it continues to grow. Last fall, the company held the ‘Freaky Car Show’ at Six Flags Fiesta Texas over four weekends. In the spring, PMX Events created a museum exhibit for the San Antonio Museum of Art called ‘Movie Metal’. The attraction set all-time, best-ever attendance records for the museum.
The PM Group’s owners have a massive collection of Hollywood movie and television cars like one of the original ’66 Batmobiles. “Our collection of Hollywood assets is valued in the millions of dollars and the vehicles are in big demand! Our Cars as Stars division has 38 vehicles in its collection that appear all over the country as well as locally,” stated The PM Group’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Fran Yanity.
