The Fit Expo San Diego | Nov. 20 - 21

Bodybuilders, martial artists, and anyone who enjoys working out and staying (or getting) in shape can have a blast at The Fit Expo in San Diego. This year’s event takes place on the weekend of November 20. Hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

You’ll find exhibitors and vendors selling new health products, and you can learn new recipes, take free fitness classes, and watch fitness competitions. Organizers expect more than 10,000 people to attend this year.

Comic-Con Special Edition | Nov. 26 - 28

Because of the ongoing COVID pandemic, The San Diego Comic-Con is not returning until summer 22. However, the organizers have planned a smaller event, Comic-Con Special Edition, for November 26 to 28, 2021. 

In ordinary years Comic-Con is a huge science fiction, fantasy, and fandom convention, bringing in approximately 135,000 attendees. Comic-Con Special Edition is meant to be a scaled-down version of that massive event with exhibits, contests, panels, and so much cosplay it will boggle your mind.
