Big Adventure: Empire of the Sun, Modest Mouse, Patton Oswalt, Cosplay, Comics & More


Big Adventure is the only place on earth where you can show up in your favorite cosplay, find that rare comic or collectible you’ve been searching for, go head-to-head with your friend in your favorite video game or tabletop game, check out some of your favorite bands and comedians, and then go dance the night away at the dance stage. See some of your favorite cast members and special guests during the TV, Film and Gaming panels, participate in interactive fan experiences, and visit the Artist Alley where some of the comic book industry’s top artists and creators will be speaking about their craft, selling artwork, meeting fans and signing autographs. Big Adventure is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience, set to immerse attendees in a world where comics, sci-fi, fantasy and gaming collide with music and comedy, at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa. Big Adventure is a cosplay friendly event, and it is definitely encouraged!
