[UPDATE] The 2017 Quick Guide has now confirmed these dates! Preview Night is typically left off basically all event listings – so the real dates should still be July 19-23, 2017.
[PREVIOUS] As first reported by An Englishman in San Diego, it’s entirely possible that we have San Diego Comic-Con 2017 dates. And it’s good news for those of you who (like us) prefer your conventions in late July, as all signs right now are pointing to July 19-23, 2017.
For the last few years, the dates for future conventions have been quietly revealed on the San Diego Convention Center’s website, well ahead of an official announcement from Comic-Con International. Back on January 4, we discovered 2016 dates a good six months ahead of CCI’s announcement. And now, the Convention Center has quietly added a new entry that looks very familiar to SDCC attendees:
130,000 attendees? A Thursday-Sunday convention? Not much else that could be.
Historically, the San Diego Convention Center leaves off Wednesday’s Preview Night date from their calendar, which would set the convention at July 19-23, 2017 for all four and a half days.
