Microsoft’s Xbox FanFest is expanding its borders as it hosts its 3-day event in Mexico City from November 11th until the 13th of this year. For those unfamiliar with FanFest, just imagine a huge fan party for Xbox enthusiasts that includes exclusive access to Xbox hosted events, gaming related swag, as well as some meet and greet opportunities with well know faces in the gaming world.

FanFest sprung about during this year’s E3 gaming convention where attendees were given early entry into the Xbox E3 2016 briefing room, custom-built backpacks filled with gaming swag, early access to game demos and chance to meet with the creators of this year’s top gaming releases.

For Xbox fans living in or near Mexico City, Friday’s FanFest activities include similar activities and prizes such as:

A special briefing event hosted by Phil Spencer at 8.00 PM local Mexico time (6:00 PM PST). Fans from around the world can watch this live on Twitch at,, and other Xbox channels we will communicate later

Exclusive early access to the Xbox event at Expo Santa Fe with no lines

Fan swag, Xbox fan shirt, and other goodies

Meet and greet with some of the industry’s top developers, leaders, and influencers

The rest of the weekend details include:

Most tickets to this Friday event will be by invitation only, but all Xbox fans will have a chance to participate. A very limited amount of tickets will be available at the front door on Friday on a First-come, first serve, one ticket per person basis.

On Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13, Xbox FanFest: Ciudad de México 2016 will then open to anyone who wants to attend and register to get a pass. Passes are free but limited so stay tuned to official Xbox Mexico social media channels to be one of the first to register.
