On top of all of their panels (and they’re even adding more, with yesterday’s news of a Con Man panel!), Syfy will also have plenty going on outside the convention center as well.
The biggest news, of course, is that their Syfy Presents Live from Comic-Con is back from Thursday, July 20 – Saturday, July 22 at the Marriott Marquis & Marina with host Zachary Levi. Tickets are unfortunately now sold out.
But, you can still likely catch a glimpse of Levi at the Syfy/Nerd HQ Fan Parties. The Nerd Machine and Syfy are bringing Nerd-HQ-style dance parties back to the convention, and you can cap off Thursday and Saturday evenings starting at 9PM at The Children’s Museum with free (first-come-first-served) parties featuring live performances. The Spazmatics will perform Thursday, and you can dance both nights away with Levi and other fans (and who knows who else might stop by?). Friday night will be invite-only again, as in previous years.
They’re also teaming up with Orlando Jones and his Cosmunity app, and they’ll be offering trivia trolleys, cosplay karaoke buses (and some of your favorite stars might stop by!), as well as cosplay repair carts, and “a drumline marching through the streets in the Gaslamp Quarter playing theme songs from Star Wars to Game of Thrones” daily. Jones will also be officiating weddings during the convention. No, really.
