Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest Brings the Fun of Toy Collecting and Convention Culture to East Ventura County

Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest, a brand-new pop culture and toy show, has found a home in Simi Valley, California. The full-day celebration of comic books, action figures, toy collecting, memorabilia, and more will take place at the Grand Vista Hotel on Sunday February 9th, 2020.

While humble in size, Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest has no shortage of activities and family fun! The show will boast a full panel room with all day programming, a game room for tabletop enthusiasts and CCG card gamers to socialize and play, a kid’s activity area, artist alley tables, and a vendor hall with celebrity guests. The entire day will culminate with a Cosplay Contest, so attendees should wear their best costumes!

Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest is proud to announce that our game room is sponsored by board game giant and publisher Ravensburger, from whom we’ve received games for attendees to play! Guest announcements and panel/programming information will be released closer to the show date.

Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest is a female owned and operated event, the brain child of internet columnist and entrepreneur Loryn Stone. She is one half of Troublemakers Services, a group that owns and manages a portfolio of conventions and expos across California. Stone has two more single-day pop culture event coming to Ventura County, one in Ventura proper Spring 2020, and Megabit Game Expo at the Grand Vista Hotel on Sunday September 13th, 2020.

“I feel like there is a hole in the pop culture event space within Ventura County,” Loryn Stone says. “There are so many great hobby stores, card shops, meet up groups, and comic book stores where their customers would love to be able to stay local and have a full day of fun immersed in nerd-culture. I worked in Simi Valley for years, and some of my family still lives out there. It’s a really great town with a strong sense of pride and culture, and I’ve just thought for a while that it would be so nice for the area to have a pop culture event and toy show to call their own! And with Megabit Game Expo coming in September 2020, Simi Valley has two events right off the bat!”
