CAMPBELL CON IS A DAY OF POP CULTURE FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMLY
- What is Campbell Con?
- Campbell Con is a one-day pop culture and comic convention in South Bay (San Francisco Bay Area): Campbell (2015-2017), and now in 2018 at West Valley College in beautiful Saratoga, CA. It is fun for all ages and celebration of comic books, movies, sci-fi and fantasy, superheroes, collectibles and more. All fandoms are welcome!
- What makes Campbell Con different?
- Campbell Con is an experience that is pop culture with a touch of intimacy. We make sure our fandom friends can take their time being one on one with their favorite guests and artists at the convention. We also strive to bring exclusive guests who rarely make appearances and keep our admission prices low so anyone can come and have fun.
- When is Campbell Con 2018?
- Campbell Con is Saturday, October 20th, 2018, 10 am to 5 pm.
- Campbell Con is in Saratoga this year. Shouldn't it be called Saratoga Con then?
- While Campbell Con first took place in Campbell, the show got its name not from the city of Campbell but from its superhero mascot, Agent Campbell. If you have been to Campbell Con before, you may have seen his silhouette in the program book. Being a superhero and special agent, Agent Campbell keeps a low profile and often goes undercover. However, this year he is revealed in our new logo and beautiful artwork by our guest artist Peter Secosh.
- Who is Colossus Girl?
- Colossus Girl is Colossus Girl Entertainment's mascot and the leader of the Team Colossus. Together with the shows' superheroes — Agent Campbell (Campbell Con), Powerhouse (Powerhouse Comic Con in Pleasanton), Captain California (California Republic Comic Con in Merced), and Meadowlark (Meadowlark Comic Con in Medford, OR), she protects the fans from evil and makes sure a good time is always had. Colossus Girl is brought to life by Jasmine aka @AtomBombBody, and she will be at the show meeting fans.
