Fan Jam Update: Date Change and Reasons

Kori here to let you guys in on a update regarding the SEGA Fan Jam event. The date of the event has been pushed from November 5th to the 12th as there will be another event that will take place called the Savannah Rock and Roll Marathon which will most likely close all roads/parking/hotels for the event preventing Fan Jam attendees & special guests from entering the event.

The good news is that event will be at the same location at the Coastal Georgia Center and by pushing the event on the 12th will give the staff more time to give Fan Jam an arcade like experience to the event.

If you have friends interested in attending, be sure to share the link around to purchase online tickets while there hot!
