Walker Stalker Con will be ringing in 2019 in an all-new location when the entertainment convention makes it debut in Phoenix, Arizona! The convention, which brings together stars from The Walking Dead and more to connect with fans and talk all things pop culture, will be taking over the Phoenix Convention Center January 26th & 27th, 2019.
Guests for Phoenix will be announced over the next few months, but at Walker Stalker’s most recent convention in Orlando, fans were treated to panels and photo-ops with plenty of Walking Dead stars including Chandler Riggs, Khary Payton, Tom Payne, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Steven Ogg, Ross Marquand and more! Previous Walker Stalker Con guests include Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, and Steven Yeun.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
