BUFFY: 20 Years of Slaying Fan Event Coming To SDCC

BUFFY: 20 Years of Slaying Fan Event Coming To SDCC

It may be hard to believe, but this year marks the 20th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s seminal television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. To celebrate two decades of Sarah Michelle Gellar dusting the undead with style, Twentieth Century Fox is hosting the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 20 Years of Slaying Fan Event in San Diego during Comic-Con.

There will be an evening of Buffy-themed giveaways, trivia, and cosplay contests. On top of all that, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series 20th Anniversary Edition DVD Boxed Set will be available for preorder at San Diego Comic-Con. (what, no Blu-ray??)

The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 20 Years of Slaying” fan event will be held Saturday, July 22 from 6-9 pm at Side Bar in the Gaslamp Quarter (exact address is 536 Market Street in San Diego). Buffy fans interested in attending can register on the official Buffy Facebook page here. A portion of this event will also be live-streamed to the page, too—perfect for folks who can’t make it to the big event.

Among the activities at the event will be a Buffy Fandom Feud Trivia Contest, where fans will get the opportunity to win Slayer Swag as they team up to show off their Buffy knowledge. There will also be a Buffy Cosplay Contest (hosted by Damian Beurer, the co-host of Super Power Beat Down). At the party, fans can show off their improv skills when they get to reenact their favorite Buffy show moments. Attendees will also be treated to themed appetizers and a Buffy 20th anniversary cake as they sip on signature Slayer drinks.

In addition, there will be a photo opportunity with a life-size image of The Gentlemen from one the series’ most beloved episodes, “Hush.” And folks who share on social media will receive an exclusive spell in a small glass vial from the forthcoming book Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire (coming from Insight Editions in October).

There will also be—are you exhausted yet by the options?—various stations and activities, including an in-person Buffy tabletop board game competition and a wall-sized Buffy coloring book pages from Dark Horse Comics. Fans will be able to color and create their own Buffy art for a special digital mosaic in celebration of #BuffySlays20. You can check out some of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer products which will be available in our gallery below, from companies like Funko, Hot Topic, Insight Editions, Dark Horse, and Jasco Games.
