Steve Wozniak and friends present the Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016 in San Jose on March 18th-20th. Silicon Valley Comic Con is a combination of Pop Culture and Technology that features top celebrities, comics, independent artists, cosplay, video games, consumer electronics, music and apps all under one roof.
Per Steve Wozniak’s message to fans “The Silicon Valley Comic Con will be a show unlike any other, as we bring together the best in technology and entertainment all under one gigantic roof! There are lots of fans like me in San Francisco and the Valley, and I’m excited to finally have a Comic Con with our very own flavor. When I was growing up it was hard to be a geek. It definitely wasn’t cool back then, but I am happy that things have changed because now being a geek, or being different is cool. And Silicon Valley Comic Con celebrates BEING A GEEK!”
The schedule is yet to be determined however as of yesterday it was announced that William Shatner is to host the 2016 Silicon Valley Comic Con. This should be an interesting show and encourage geeks alike to attend if they can (I’m already checking into getting a press pass so I can attend).
As always I will keep you all informed as I receive information about 2016 Silicon Valley Comic Con, especially the schedule.

Hope to see you all there!
San Jose, Calif. – Sept. 21, 2015 – The original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, has set coordinates for Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC), Steve Wozniak’s pop culture and technology expo debuting in March 2016. Tickets are now on sale for the inaugural event, which has added a Friday night opening due to overwhelming interest and support. SVCC will bring top celebrities, film, TV, independent artists, comic books, cosplay, video games, music and technology to the San Jose Convention Center the weekend of March 18-20, 2016.
As the first official details for SVCC to be revealed, William Shatner will host a special 50th anniversary celebration for Star Trek alongside other stars from the acclaimed TV and film series. More information about the celebration and the rest of the special events for SVCC will be released later this fall.
“It’s only logical to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ‘Star Trek’ alongside technology that was just science fiction when ‘Star Trek’ first began to broadcast,” said William Shatner. “I’m looking forward to participating in the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con.”
“Not only did ‘Star Trek’ captivate a legion of science fiction lovers, it also inspired generations of engineers, scientists, directors, writers and artists,” said Wozniak. “Just like ‘Star Trek,’ Silicon Valley Comic Con will bridge the gap between entertainment and technology. We have many more events and surprises planned, so fans should grab their tickets now to join all the fun.”
