The Superheroes, Super villains, gamers, anime fans, fan boys, jocks, costumers, and everyone in between are coming back to wave their geek flag at the Central Coast Comic Con August 28 – 30. The new signature end of summer event is returning to the Ventura County fairgrounds for its third exciting year.
The history of this area and the fairgrounds itself makes it easy to bring in stars of movies, comics, TV and the Internet to help in this charity awareness event. This year the event is bringing stars like Sid Haig, Michael Jai White, Doug Jones, cast members from American Horror Story, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sons of Anarchy, Supernatural and many other popular shows. Plus Creators like Bob Layton, local comic legend, Howard Chaykin, Brian Pulido, Marvel comics legend, Allen Bellman and a mix of upcoming writers and artists.
Each year local artists have this avenue to display and offer their wares for all to see. From artist to authors to movie stars, each have joined in to meet their fans and make dreams come true. Popular culture vendors and talented musicians are available to add to the excitement of each of the days..
Sunday has always been dedicated as “Kids Day” with Costume Parades, the joy of Disney Princess shows for the princess in your life and Wrestling and Power Rangers, for that warrior in your family. Children/young adults 10 and under are free with a paid adult ticket all weekend long. Discounts are available at the gate for all of our local military members as a means to say thank you.
Central Coast Comic Con (C4) is the accomplishment of a long time goal to return to the community that we grew up in. The company behind the popular culture convention, WTF Events INC, is working to become a reliable resource for youth groups, disadvantage families and activists towards the artists and creators of the future. Their motto is “Community first”. They work with charity and community groups like the Coalition and Big Brothers Big Sisters to change lives and better our community by bringing awareness to the many issues of our youth such as anti bullying, reading and art programs in addition to kids charities. These cars will provide a special ride for that child in the hospital or a ride for the youth in a local parade and so much more!
Visit and see just what C4 has to offer for our community and its members.
