The ULTIMATE SDCC 2019 Party List: San Diego Comic-Con’s After Parties, Concerts, Events & More!

Comics, Celebrities, Parties and FRIENDS!

It’s Summer 2019, and that means: San Diego COMIC-CON! Or SDCC for short, as we call it around these parts. We’re back for our umpteenth year putting this list together, and want to make sure you have an amazing time at the big expo. Really, though, it has the best afterparties of any Con each year, and we *try* to get as many listed here as we can — you have to get your groove on, after all.

LINKS!

  • As usual, the FACEBOOK GROUP is our partner in good time, so make sure you head there for coordinating with friends and meeting new peeps!
  • And join the SDCC parties Discord (run by SideQuesting)!
  • And again, MASSIVE thanks to Andie and Dali!

If you have a party to share, post it in the comments below, use our Contact Form or shoot me a tweet @DaliDimovski! :)

The list is here, we’re adding to it fast and furious and hobbs and shaw. Come back often to see all of the additions and updates. We’re testing out a simpler spreadsheet style format this year, so let us know in the comments if this works better than in the past.

Enjoy!

We are *NOT* affiliated with SDCC. We just like to party.
