San Diego Comic Con Offsite Events 2015

 

Every year there is a larger and larger number of events occurring during the Comic Con International: San Diego that are related to the convention, but WHICH PEOPLE CAN ATTEND WITHOUT A BADGE.

 

So, you didn’t get that membership to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. That’s no reason not to come down to San Diego in July. There are numerous

events for those interested in comics, SF&F and related popular arts: art exhibitions, parties, concerts, meetups, zombies and more. Some are free and some charge admission, but all the events listed below can be visited without a Comic-Con membership. (Several events extend beyond the weekend as well.)

 

If you are hosting an event outside of SDCC (that DOES NOT require a convention membership), we want to know about it! Contact the site administrator with all the pertinent information and your event can be added to this list! Also, you can visit our event page on Facebook
