Denver Comic Con (DCC), Denver’s largest consumer convention and program of education-nonprofit Pop Culture Classroom (PCC), announces the dates for the 2017 convention as June 30 – July 2, 2017 at the Colorado Convention Center. Tickets will go on sale this fall.
In 2016—the 5th year anniversary of the event—Denver Comic Con saw attendance of over 114,900, making it one of the largest comic conventions in the nation. Guests like comic book legend Stan Lee, Game of Thrones star Lena Headey and 80s icon Ralph Macchio, helped Denver Comic Con become one of the most attended pop culture conventions in America.
“2016 was a blast, and of course the growth of the event is exciting. It’s an honor to be able to bring such popular guests, comic artists and programs to the Denver community. We’re already working to make the 2017 line-up the best yet,” said Christina Angel, Convention Director.
Denver Comic Con’s popularity is also due in part to its robust schedule of programming—more than 300 hours of panels during which artists, creators, celebrities and industry experts talk about their craft and their creations—as well as its family-friendly mission and environment. The largest portion of the show floor, more than 9,000 sq. ft., is dedicated to teens and children with activities designed to engage kids in education through pop culture.
