San Deigo Comic-Con ‘Special Edition’ will be held Thanksgiving weekend at the San Diego Convention Center, November 26 thru the 28th.
It will be the first San Diego Comic-Con in more than a year since the coronavirus pandemic lead government officials to cancel large gatherings around the country.
“It is our hope that by fall conditions will permit larger public gatherings, Comic-Con Special Edition will be the first in-person convention produced by the organization since Comic-Con 2019, and the first since the onset of the global pandemic COVID-19.”
San Diego Comic-Con, like many small restaurants across the country, is feeling the financial pressure of a year without events as well. It’s estimated that San Diego Comic-Con, a non-profit organization brings in an estimated $166 million to San Diego.
“Hopefully this event will shore up our financial reserves and mark a slow return to larger in-person gatherings in 2022,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the nonprofit organization.
