Grape City Con 2017 | Preview

This weekend Grape City Con returns to the city of Lodi for another day of fun. Last year was the first time Nerd Gazette checked out the event. It was a really fun time since most of our central valley friends attended as well. Plenty of vendors filled the venue, plus some amazing special guests came out to the event.

People attending this weekend will have the chance to meet Shawna Waldron (Little Giants), Aaron Schwartz (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Zack Ward (A Christmas Story), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce) and Cameron Jebo (Power Rangers Super Megaforce). There will, of course, be many artists and writers to meet, while vendors also filling in space to meet your shopping needs.

Programming throughout the day include card & video game tournament and costume contest. The event will run from 10am to 4pm, giving folks something fun to do on a Sunday. Tickets for Grape City Con is currently $5 in advance via Eventbrite. Door price will be $8.

Coverage will be posted throughout the following week, so be on the lookout for all of it. We'll try our best to put together another convention vlog since the last one was for SacAnime earlier this year. In case you see us, be sure to say hello! :)

Update 4/8/17: Special guest Zack Ward will not be attending due to a family emergency. See the update on the event's Facebook page.
