Baltimore Comic-Con offers fun for comic fans of all ages Sept. 28-30 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Every fall thousands of fans flood the Baltimore streets in fandom tees or full cosplay costumes, repping their nerdiness en route to Comic-Con at the Baltimore Convention Center. Baltimore Comic-Con is a celebration of all things pop and geek culture. Comic-Con draws out all types of fans—whether you’re fangirling or fanboying over superheroes, wizards, spaceships, or zombies, they’re all being celebrated in one place by adoring fans from around the area. If you have never been and enjoy all things pop culture then put this on your Fall bucket list.
Once you enter the building you will find yourself amongst countless rows of crafted action figures, movie props, artwork, sketche artists, character designers, lore, cosplay characters and more.
