Where is Pin and Patch Con?
San Diego’s best place to buy pins, outside of Comic Con, is located at San Diego State University, at Montezuma Hall. This indoor venue makes for the perfect location considering the June Gloom that has been covering America’s Finest City. You can find the convention located at Montezume Hall, Aztec Student Union, San Diego, CA 92182 .
What time does the show begin?
Conventioner goers will be let in starting at noon. The first five hundred convention goers will get a free pin designed by El Black Bat. Once entered, the show will last into the evening. Attendees will even be able to trade their designing in the new, specially designed pin trading area.
This will be the first Pin and Patch Con event since Pins & Pints event earlier this year. Known for filling up the North Park Brewery and Coin-Op, the local con has been gaining moment, drawing more fans (and makers) from farther and farther away.
Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased upon arrival. However it may be wise to purchase a parking spot in advance. That or plan on taking the trolley, which will pop you out just at the foot of the stair well from Montezuma Hall.
