San Diego Comic-Con 2023 Events at Petco Park

Posted in 2023 in

Comic-Con will be back in San Diego in 2023. The three-day conference, SDCC 2023, will be held Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23, 2023. Petco Park is always a must-visit during Comic-Con weekend, providing spectacles outside of the convention center for all, including those without a Comic-Con badge. This year, information has been slowly trickling in.


So far the only event, which is not affiliated with the convention, is the Jimmy Eat World / Manchester Orchestra concert.


Here are some details from last year:

Petco Park Interactive Zone

Immerse yourself in more than a dozen activities and activations in the parking lot across the street from Comic-Con, see things too big to fit in the San Diego Convention Center! Note: The Interactive Zone is open to the public.

Nintendo will have a strong presence in the Petco Park Interactive Zone from Thursday, July 21 – Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 10am-6pm daily, and Sunday, July 24 from 10am-4pm. Fans will be allowed to demo new games (Nintendo Switch™ Sports, Mario Strikers™: Battle League, and Kirby™ and the Forgotten Land), pick up some cool takeaways and snap a Instagram-worthy photo or two.
