Crocker Con

Capes and tights, oh my! It’s time to bust out your best superhero getup and head to Crocker Art Museum’s ArtMix Crocker Con! The museum’s fourth annual celebration of comic culture is going down on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 5–9 p.m. and will feature (you guessed it) an epic costume contest and tons of other fun things to look at and interact with, like mind-blowing “tape art” from Tapigami, dozens of vendor booths, local comic book artists and writers, independent game designers, character karaoke, a scavenger hunt, a masquerade parade and so much more. Sleeprockers will be spinning tunes all night, plus there will be drink and food specials as well. ArtMix goes down every second Thursday with creative rotating themes, and they’re usually geared toward adult audiences, but for Crocker Con it’s all-ages, so bring the whole fam! Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates always provide ArtMix patrons with free bike valet, so feel free to ride to the event and be worry-free knowing your bicycle is under close watch. The event is free to Crocker members and just $10 for adults, $8 for college students, $5 for kids ages 7–17, and free for children 6 and under. For more information, visit, call (916) 808-7000 or simply stop into the museum located at 216 O St. to chat with the front desk attendant.
