For three days in late August each year, the world-famous Comic Con event (short for Comic Convention) comes to Palm Springs, bringing the fun and excitement of your favorite comic book heroes, fantasy figures, sci-fi stories, and all things nerdy to the oasis of Coachella Valley. For more details on making Palm Springs Comic Con the highlight of your Palm Springs vacation, read on below!
Comic Con Palm Springs is a rapidly growing event that caters to the inner geek within everyone. Each year, the convention is hosted in locations all over the United States, coming to Palm Springs for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the last weekend of August annually.
At Comic Con, you can experience all kinds of incredible nerdy events, activities, and attractions. From panels discussing your favorite fantasy and sci-fi shows and movies (from Game of Thrones to Mystery Science Theater 3000) to elaborate costumes, the Zombie/Cosplay Walk, booths with art and merchandise from your favorite anime and comic book series, and themed events like Super Sonic Speed Dating, there’s something here for all fandoms.
In Palm Springs, Comic Con is held at multiple venues. Past hosts of the convention include the Palm Springs Air Museum, a popular event venue for its cool aircraft ambiance and its massive space. You’ll find this museum at 745 N. Gene Autry Trail, Palm Springs, CA 92262.
The timing of Comic Con Palm Springs also coincides with the Palm Springs International Animation Festival, which runs for four days leading up to and during Comic Con. It’s a fantastic opportunity for fans of animated visual art mediums, such as anime and other forms of animated movies, to immerse themselves in art from around the world. Past event venues for this festival have included the Palm Springs Cultural Center Theatre, located at 2300 E. Baristo Rd., Palm Springs, CA 92262.
