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 annual Gila Valley Comic Con. 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.
