Comic-Con 2021 Events at Petco Park

2021 Update: Comic-Con will be back in San Diego in 2021. The three-day conference will be held November 26-28, Friday – Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. The event was pushed back from the usual July dates due to coronavirus safety restrictions.

An estimated 150,000 fans and attendees of Comic-Con were expected to hit the San Diego Convention Center last July. Because of the pandemic, the 2020 Comic Con was held virtually.

No word yet when, what and how the spill-over events at neighboring facilities in downtown San Diego like Petco Park will go down, for example the famously popular Interactive Zone. Also the entire event is being planned with fingers-crossed optimism that COVID-19 burdens will continue to lessen and not return.
