Kid-Kon — A Comic-Con Just for Kids and Their Families

Posted on May 12, 2017 at 3:50 pm

Comic Conventions, which now encompass not just comics or even just sci-fi/fantasy but all of popular culture and lively arts, are thrilling but even the hardiest adults can find them overwhelming. Now there’s a Kid Kon just for children and their families, at the Pasadena Convention Center June 10-11, 2017, and it even has a quiet room (San Diego Comic-Con, take note); a special place for parents with babies and toddlers to chill out. There is a princess party, a superhero gathering, Jedi training, a superhero bash, and yoga for children. Special guests include “Yo Gabba Gabba’s” DJ Lance Rock!

Founders Jose and Jessica Prendes write:

Kid Kon is the first-ever fan convention of its kind; a convention with the young fans in mind. As fans of popular entertainment ourselves, we take our two kids to conventions all the time, and half the time they are bored out of their minds because the programming is usually skewed toward an older audience.

We decided that this needed to change.

The goal of Kid Kon is to throw the biggest fandom party any kid has ever seen, celebrating the popular arts like comic books, movies, books, video games, and tv shows that kids are rabid fans of, and giving them a once in a lifetime chance to meet their favorite celebrities in person.

Join us at Kid Kon, where kids of all ages can kick the summer off right!
