Keen Halloween


Keen Halloween was a family oriented convention with a maker faire aesthetic that's held near and revolving around Halloween.

It was started by Daniel and Dawna Davis of Steam Crow who ran two events in 2012 and 2013.

After a couple of years on hiatus, they partnered with Matt Solberg of Square Egg Entertainment, the parent company of Phoenix Comicon, to bring back the event with a more vendor-centric approach.

The planned 2017 event was cancelled in March 2017 with the news that ownership had passed back to Daniel and Dawna and they were retiring it as a convention. More details will be forthcoming, but the name may live on in other forms.
