EXPERIENCE BIG ADVENTURE

OC FAIR + EVENT CENTER

Serving as a celebration of pop culture and fandom in all forms, 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.

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 Cosplay friendly event and it is definitely encouraged!

LIVE STAGE

The Live Music Stage in the Hangar will be buzzing all day and night with the sounds of Empire Of The Sun, Modest Mouse, Phantogram, Cold War Kids and many more!
