What to expect at Comic Con in Oakland with Kids

The convention is family friendly: kids ages 12 and under get in free.

There are plenty of activities including a kid zone, Escape Rooms, and a diversity of panels to attend throughout the day. The events schedule can be found on the Comic Con website >>

My picks for kids include a magic show, a comedy improv session, and balloon animals, plus time to generally mill around, admiring costumes.


High fives to the organizers for creating a panel called RATED E FOR EVERYONE, which is not for kids necessarily, but about inclusion and diversity in the world of superheroes. An LGBTQ meet up for queer fans of the genre is planned as well.

Getting to San Francisco Comic Con in Oakland with kids

The Oakland Convention Center is located at 550 10th Street, a five-minute walk from the 12th Street BART station. There are plenty of parking lots in downtown Oakland. Expect to pay about $15 to park in one of them.
