San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Dates Likely Revealed

If you’re still not recovered from San Diego Comic-Con 2017, we’ve got something this morning that might just make your head spin – likely dates for San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Yes, you read that right.

As first reported by An Englishman in San Diego, it’s very likely that we have San Diego Comic-Con 2019 dates: July 17-21, 2019.

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 in August, we shared 2018 dates, which were later confirmed by CCI last month (and for those who don’t already know: July 18-July 22, 2018).

And now, the Convention Center has quietly added a new entry that looks very familiar to SDCC attendees:

126,000 attendees (which is, interestingly, slightly below the usual 130,000 listed)? A Thursday-Sunday convention, in the exact same week as the convention was held in 2017 and will be held in 2018? 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 17-21, 2019 for all four and a half days.

Currently, 2021 is the last contracted year for San Diego Comic-Con to stay in, well, San Diego – meaning maybe Comic-Con is busy planning 2020 and 2021 dates as we speak.

    Sadly the service I use doesn’t let you make any reservations so far into the future..

    I’m curious as to why they aren’t listing the usual 130,000 in attendance? Can we still put under 130,000 people in the San Diego Convention Center? I hope so! The more the merrier, right? I also want to say that this last Comic Con was the most efficiently run and best managed I’ve been to in San Diego in the past decade!
