California, the Golden State, has the largest, and most diverse population in the United States of America. With its giant multicultural population, it comes as no surprise that California is also host to the most prestigious pop culture conventions in America. Whether you are a fan of anime, comics, furrys, horror, Sci-Fi, or collectable conventions, California is sure to have the perfect convention for you to attend in 2017!

Cali’s best known, and largest, convention is Comic-Con International: San Diego, that takes place each summer, at the San Diego Convention Center! It is an all age, family oriented event, that celebrates the world of comicdom, and brings talent and visitors from around the world to San Diego, CA. Slightly smaller, but no less exciting, is the Spring event WonderCon Anaheim. WonderCon features the excellent quality of Comic Con, as they are organized by the same people, but adds a definite Anaheim twist, which ensures both WonderCon Anaheim and Comicon San Diego are unique and original!

Silicon Valley Comic Con is an independent event, which takes place in the spring, at the sprawling San Jose Convention Center. This amazing event features not only comics and pop culture, but a swath of game-changing technology, that brings us closer to the world of tomorrow with each passing second! SVCC in San Jose is the perfect mix of fandom, science fiction, gaming, and futuristic technology.

Gamers and geeks can get their fill of convention madness, in Las Angeles, at the IndieCade Gaming Convention, the massive celebration of independent games, and their developers. This mid-fall celebration offers competitions, workshops, gaming, and opportunities to meet your favorite developers and designers, in a casual environment, while having a blast with your friends! For developers and designers, IndiCade is a great chance to collaborate with others, network, and show off your home-made software to a live audience!

Anime Expo, LA, CA is the most prestigious pop culture celebration in California, if not all of America! Anime Expo takes place this summer at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, and features uncountable of hours of anime, Cosplay competitions, and hundreds of exhibitors, vendors, artists, and crafters! Anime Expo in Los Angeles is the perfect getaway from the rigors of daily-life.

These are only a few of the spectacular events going on this 2017 in California. Look through our directories to find a complete list of upcoming conventions in California, 2017.
