Thursday, March 2nd – Sunday, March 5th 

It’s big, majestic, and geeky. Come this first weekend of March, Seattle welcomes every cosplayer, comic fanatic, and overall nerd to come out of hiding and celebrate their geekiness with one of the largest comic cons in the PNW. Where else can a person snap selfies with Kratoschilling at a Starbucks?

Attendees are welcome to take pictures, conversate, and ask questions (respectfully!) about “Why did he have to die?” with their favorite actors and celebrities. Some celebs this year include:

🎭 Mercedes Varnado (Disney’s The Mandalorian)
🎭 Stephen Amell (Arrow, Heels)
🎭 Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow)
🎭 David Tennant (Dr. Who)
🎭 and Mark Ruffalo (Avengers: Endgame)

The RSVPs for this thing on Facebook are wild (over 30,000!!), and the convention expects to bring in around 75,000 people. So expect a lot of humans, interdimensional beings, and exhibitors to pack out the Seattle Convention Center’s new Summit building.
