Everyone from geeks to jocks wants to attend the world’s largest and most well-known celebration of fandom, but many are left wanting for tickets. For the last several years, there have been numerous offsite events and parties to attend that don’t require a Comic-Con badge. Nowadays, there are so many offsite events that people can travel to San Diego and have a great time without even entering the SD Convention Center. Click here for the most up-to-date list of offsite events.
One of the fanciest events that celebrates geekdom is the Avant Garde Costume Gala 2017 on Saturday night. This wondrous event offers much more than a welcoming atmosphere in which to show off costumes. This year attendees will enjoy VR stations, interesting 2D and 3D art installations, chef stations featuring high-end cuisine, live dance performances, DJ music, and an Avant Garde Fashion Show, a costume contest, raffle prizes, and much more! Costumes are not required, but they are encouraged.
General admission tickets for this high-end event normally cost $75, but you can get a $20 discount by using this link (Avant Garde Costume Gala) and then clicking on the “tickets” tab.
