ReaderCon Year 2
On March 25th, 2017, in association with La Quinta Public Library, we are excited to bring you ReaderCON Year 2! A mini comic convention with a dedicated focus on literacy. Part of Palm Springs Comic Con's goal is to create literacy programs and to get more people reading. 1 in 7 adults in the US are illiterate. We are striving to make reading accessible, fun, and approachable. By joining forces with La Quinta Public Library, not only are we helping to raise funds for the La Quinta Public Library but to also help create new readers and eliminate illiteracy.
FCBD at Desert Oasis Comics
On the first Saturday of every May, we join forces with our favorite local comic book retailer, Desert Oasis Comics, to bring an awesome, family friendly, fan oriented, event for Free Comic Book Day! It's a day where you can go to your local participating retailer and pick up a free comic book. We expand upon this idea to bring the fans a fun experience with food, carnival games, prizes, a cosplay contest and more! May 7th, 2016 is the next Free Comic Book Day so make sure to mark that down on your calendar!!!
Palm Springs Comic Con is Your Comic Con
Palm Springs Comic Con is more than a pop culture convention. We are a geek culture convention. We pride ourselves in honoring the rich tradition and history of comic books, sci fi, and fantasy, while embracing all forms of media, especially new media such as YouTube, blogging, podcasts, tech, and indie game development. We want to offer an experience that gives the fans more of a connection than the typical convention. We want our fans to not just satiate the desire to consume the fandoms they love but to feel educated, informed, inspired, to feel like they too can do what the creators of the art they love can do.
We are a convention by the fans, for the fans. Thanks to the fan community, Palm Springs Comic Con was able to raise over $14,000 in startup money via Kickstarter. Thanks to you, we have are able to bring you the intimate experience that more and more fans are seeking. We are able to offer a safe place for fans to connect with one another. So again, we cannot thank you enough!!!
