SDCC Offsite events 2014


San Diego Comic-Con has evolved from just an event inside the convention center, and now there are LOTS of things to do outside of it, most of which do not require your Comic-Con badge. No matter what you’re into, there is probably an offsite event that may be of interest to you.

From concerts such including: San Diego Symphony: Video Games Live on Thursday, Danny Elfman’s music from the Films of Tim Burton on Friday, Star Trek (2009) – Film Screening with Live Soundtrack performed by San Diego Symphony on Saturday, The Aquabats 20th Anniversary Tour Thursday evening, The Voice Tour Sunday starting at 7pm.

To comedy shows by various comedians (Judah Frielander from 30 Rock on Thursday, Chris Hardwick doing a live @midnight show Friday night, Doug Benson doing his “Doug Loves Movies” podcast live on Wednesday, w00tstock 6.0 featuring Wil Wheaton, Adam Savage and Paul & Storm on Thursday night, Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith late Friday night)

To zombie-fied events (Walking Dead Escape on Friday and Saturday, The 8th annual Zombie Walk (and post walk party) on Saturday evening)

To beer events for the 21+ crowd (Hop-Con 2.0 The w00tstout Festival on Wednesday at 7pm, Heroes Brew Craft Beer Festival which is Saturday afternoon until early evening, SDCC 3DS Pokemon Tournament for Craft Beer Lovers also on Wednesday but starting at 6pm)

Of course those are just a small sampling of events that are taking place during the time that Comic-Con is in town. I’ve compiled a longer list here (google doc, spreadsheet format)
