This year, the Sherman Oaks Street Fair is launching SOPOPCON, the first street based Pop Culture Convention in California, to engage millennials and families w/children that love comics, fantasy, and science fiction, along with their parents who grew up with them just the same.
Sherman Oaks has been synonymous with the latest pop culture fads since the 80's (highlighted in Fast Times at Ridgemont High - filmed at the Sherman Oaks Galleria - as well as Valley Girl, the 1983 cult classic that made popular the colloquial California English dialect Valleyspeak. The time is right for Sherman Oaks to start another fad with the introduction of SOPOPCON!
The new Pop Culture Zone will include comic shops, collectibles, pop culture fashion, accessory items and cosplay. We are inviting established comic artists to be on-hand to promote their upcoming comic runs and project releases in the SOPOPCON Autograph Booth.
The Sherman Oaks Street Fair is in its 29th year and takes place Sunday, October 20th from 10am to 6pm. We close Ventura Blvd. down between Van Nuys Blvd. and Kester Ave - it's the only "Valley" venue that will hold 100,000 people and is the largest single day event in the Valley going on 10 years+! Last year's event included over 250 vendors, a carnival, a full live concert schedule, a community stage and local vendors and artists selling their wares.
