On October 12, 2019, there was the Santa Clara City Library Comic Con at the Santa Clara Central Park Library in, you guessed it, Santa Clara, California. It was a one day celebration utilizing the entire facility to make it a family friendly event.
Every room was utilized for some kind of event whether it be a games room or a panel room. They did an amazing job making use of all the space available and also using the outdoors. The wonderful thing was that it was a bright and sunny day.
Just because it’s a small event doesn’t mean they couldn’t get guests. They were able to get artists/writers that have worked on media that we have all enjoyed. One of the most popular cosplayers, Vampy Bit Me, was also a guest.
One of my favorite aspects was the trivia contest which I happened to be on a winning team although my Star Trek knowledge is atrocious. I also was on a second place team for the Marvel Cinematic Universe competition.
I really enjoyed that it was a community event where folks of all ages can come to enjoy. It didn’t cost a dime to attend nor were there pressures of trying to be the best cosplayer ever. I enjoyed it for what it was.
