You know an event is huge when there are multiple lists of events orbiting around the big, bright star that is the main event. In this instance, the main event in question is Comic-Con 2019 (SDCC 2019), and the events surrounding it could be official or unofficial parties, talks, meetups, and more. Rather than be late to the party (so to speak) with our own list, we’re going to tip our hat to the hard work of list creators on other sites and share them out. The listing is presented in the alphabetical order of the site on which they’re hosted.
If you’re attending Comic-Con, you may want to check each list for the events that match your interests, whether it’s games, comic books, anime, and so on. Since some of these lists are sure to be updated, you’ll want to re-visit them or bookmark them before and during the week of Comic-Con. If you have any interest in attending any particular event or events at all, it’s wise to sign up now before tickets are sold out or the event is waitlisted.
To get a sense of what the Comic-Con party experience is like, if you’re new to it and want to know what to expect, check out this video by the Con Guys previewing the party and event scene from SDCC 2018.
Happy hunting and good luck!
No Comic-Con badge needed: SDCC off-sites taking over downtown San Diego
“San Diego’s downtown area will be clad in plenty of Comic-Con fun that doesn’t require a ticket to the convention.
San Diego Comic-Con’s off-site activations packed tons of family fun into the Gaslamp District every year, ensuring those who didn’t get badges for the convention can still have a great time.
Movie studios, television networks, and comic publishers fill the city with carnival rides and games, free merchandise and giveaways, and exclusive experiences surrounding popular shows and characters.”

“Outside of the Convention Center, networks and studios alike hope lavish activations will help attract new viewers and offer free promotion in the areas in and around downtown San Diego. Then, after the convention floor closes and the sun sets at Comic-Con, stars and industry insiders alike escape the crowds and cosplay for San Diego’s party scene.

This is a simple, easy-to-navigate (and apparently pretty solid) list of events associated with Comic-Con. Each link offers time, location and further event details, plus calendering options.

“It’s Summer 2019, and that means: San Diego COMIC-CON! Or SDCC for short, as we call it around these parts. We’re back for our umpteenth year putting this list together, and want to make sure you have an amazing time at the big expo. Really, though, it has the best afterparties of any Con each year, and we *try* to get as many listed here as we can — you have to get your groove on, after all.”

“2019 marks the 50th anniversary of San Diego Comic-con, but that doesn’t mean anyone will take it easy when the big event kicks off on July 17.
There’ll be plenty of partying to be had throughout the week, from a chance to kick it with a hip hop legend, bashes for shows like Amazon’s “The Expanse” and “Carnival Row,” to unofficial soirees celebrating fan-favorites like “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Stranger Things.” Plus, you can try out libations inspired by “Game of Thrones” at the week’s most exclusive bash, attend a fundraiser for the Comic-Con Museum, and even preview the upcoming Robert Rodriguez-Cirque du Soleil collaboration (no really!).”
