2023 is already shaping up to a big year — at least for Funko. The company will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with “Fun on the Run”, a cross-country tour announced at their 2022 Press and Investors Event. Decider spoke with the company about their anniversary plans, which culminate at the final stop — San Diego Comic-Con 2023.
For Fun on the Run, Funko will be hitting the road in a Funko truck to 25 different locations, where they’ll bring a “carnival-like experience” to fans, including a Box of Fun.
The “Box of Fun” is traditionally given out to attendees at the very popular Funko Fundays event at San Diego Comic-Con, the annual offsite celebrating all things Funatic. Dave Beré, Vice President of Brand & Marketing at Funko, confirmed that this would supplement the box at that event, rather than replace it.
“This isn’t going to take the place of the box that we do around our Fundays event, that is very special for our fans. But as we look through the assortment of the types of product that we want, our fans engage with, they’re going to be very different,” Beré said in a release provided to Decider. “This one is going to be very focused on our 25th anniversary.”
As previously announced, next year’s Fundays event at San Diego Comic-Con will be moving to the Rady Shell, to accommodate even more fans — a fitting venue for the company’s big anniversary.
Other location stops are still to be announced in the coming months, though entry will be free.
