Arizona Sun Corridor
Sierra Vista lies at the center of the southern part of the Arizona Sun Corridor, home to many fan conventions.

Sierra Vista, one hour southeast of Tucson, was previously home to several pop culture fan conventions, including Game On! Sierra Vista. The nearby community of Bisbee has hosted the Alice in Bisbeeland festival, and Thatcher, one hour northeast of Sierra Vista, will host their second annual Gila Valley Comic Con in 2019. And of course Tucson is famed for its Tucson Comic-Con, TusCon, RinCon, and the Tucson Festival of Books. The southern part of the Arizona Sun Corridor is a major hotbed for fan conventions, and Sierra Vista sits at the center of the region.

Tickets sales for Cochise College Comic Con 2019 will soon be on sale.
