Blood Bash 2019

Join Meggaxp and Experience Jackson as we bring Blood Bash back to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 15th and 16th, 2019!

Blood Bash ’19 is the third iteration of the Meggaxp horror/valentine’s spinoff show, and is sure to be better than ever! This year we are expanding to a *kind of* 2-day festival, as fans of horror movies will get to enjoy TWO DAYS of horror films with slaying, slashing, gore and more!

Friday, February 15th is our bonus day this year! While our vendors are setting up for the show on Saturday, the FILM ROOM will be open and showing all kinds of horror films! The lineup is yet to be announced, but know that the bar and screening room will be open for our patrons to enjoy even more gore!

Saturday, February 16th will be the traditional Blood Bash day! This is when fans of horror, schlock, gore and more can come into the Commonwealth Commerce Center and enjoy an entire day filled with horror vendors, filmmakers, guests, crafters, video games, horror trivia challenges, paranormal podcasts, medium readings, VR Expeirences and much more!
