Wicked West Expo 2022 – IT’S HAPPENING!

Wicked West Expo is finally happening! Originally planned for 2020, the Expo was delayed due to COVID-19.

Nick and the Awesome in Action team are so excited to share that Nick will have a booth both days of the event and a panel on Sunday, time to be announced. Nick’s panel is called Anyone Can Be a Hero and features Nick sharing some of his strengths and helping the audience find their inner superpowers!

The Expo takes place from 10:00AM to 6:00PM on April 2nd and 3rd. The Expo will be in the First National Bank Building at the Ranch Events Complex.

It would mean so much to Nick and the team if his community could come support him at Wicked West! As we transition back into in person opportunities, the nerves are running high but so is the excitement. We are pumped to be part of this fun filled event.

Use it as an excuse to dress up as your favorite character, bring the kids, and check out some amazing exhibitors.

You do need to purchase tickets for the event, they are $15 for ages 12 and up, and $5 for ages 11 and under. The ticket covers access to both days of the events. You can purchase tickets by clicking this link.

You never know who you’ll meet at Comic Con!
