Comic-Con International: San Diego

July 18 - 21, 2019
San Diego Convention Center, 111 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101

San Diego Comic-Con International is a multi-genre entertainment and comic convention. Originally showcasing primarily comic books and science fiction/fantasy related film, television, and similar popular arts, the convention has since included a larger range of pop culture and entertainment elements across virtually all genres, including horror, animation, anime, manga, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, and fantasy novels.

According to Forbes, San Diego Comic-Con is the "largest convention of its kind in the world."

Along with panels, seminars, and workshops with comic book professionals, there are previews of upcoming feature films, and portfolio review sessions with top comic book and video game companies. The evenings include events such as awards ceremonies, the annual Masquerade costume contest, and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, which showcases shorts and feature-length movies that do not have distribution or distribution deals.

Attendee badges for 2019 are sold out. If you'd like to attend future events, see the Attending the Show section on the website.
