You may think San Diego Comic-Con is just a bunch of nerds gathering together to dress up in costumes and write fan fiction, but that’s just not the case. As much of that statement is true, Comic-Con is in fact a giant hub for big parties to celebrate geekdom and a place for celebrities to mingle with fans, sometimes. There are many, many fantastic events to attend this year, and you can find our ultimate SDCC party guide after the break.
Typically, Comic-Con parties are for the most part RSVP, private events, but this year fans will have theirs. More than ever, there are a slew of open events for badge holders as well as the public to enjoy a night of food, fun, music, and drinks. If you are looking to attend the magical beasts that are the big Hollywood parties, my suggestion to you would be to look out for social media contests.
