Comic-Con Center for Popular Culture Moving Into Balboa Park

The San Diego Hall of Champions announced today that they are relocating from their current home at the Federal Building in Balboa Park to Petco Park – and taking their place will be none other than Comic-Con International (just as we speculated last year).

CCI will be using the facility as the Comic-Con Center for Popular Culture – possibly a larger version of “The Art of Comic-Con” library exhibit they hosted last year.

“Even as we prepare our sister show WonderCon in Anaheim this month, we are excited to be part of this announcement,” a Comic-Con spokesperson said in the press release. “The Hall of Champions has our deepest appreciation in helping us to achieve this new chapter in Comic-Con history. This center will provide a year round interactive celebration of the innumerable aspects of popular culture.”

We’ll share more information as we get it.
