Experience the Comix

Experience the Comix was created through a partnership between Illegal Pete’s and Pop Culture Classroom. Each year, tickets to Denver Comic Con—a program of Pop Culture Classroom—are given to middle and high school students with the goal of helping these students experience pop culture as a fun and engaging educational tool. Experience the Comix also teaches students about the many career paths that pop culture offers. 

When is Experience the Comix?
ETC will take place on Friday, June 30th, 2017 from roughly 10 AM to 5 PM.

Where is Experience the Comix?
It will be held at the Colorado Convention Center (700 14th St, Denver, CO 80202) during the first day of Denver Comic Con 2017. Important note: We cannot provide transportation to and from the event.

Who can come?
Middle and high school students who are unable to afford a day at Denver Comic Con are welcome to attend. Our goal is to provide an inspiring cultural and educational opportunity that will open minds to new, potential career opportunities. We ask that students who have already come to Experience the Comix in previous years please refrain from returning to allow others to enjoy this unique experience.

How can I or my students attend?

Typically, we have an application process for schools and community organizations that want to attend ETC at Denver Comic Con. Since the program is so popular, we have already reached capacity for the 2017 event. While we are thrilled that there are so many people that want to attend, sadly, we don’t have resources for all interested parties. We are sorry if you have not had a chance to come and encourage you to look for application in early 2018.
