All Day Comic-Con International Comic-Con International returns to the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con is the longest continuously-run comics and popular-arts convention in the U.S.

With attendance topping 130,000 in recent years in a convention center that has maxed out in space, the event has grown to include satellite locations, including hotels and parks. Many celebrity appearances, costume competitions, art installations, lectures, workshops, and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival take place outside of the Convention Center, creating a campus-type feel for the convention in downtown San Diego.

Admission/Cost: Comic Con is Sold Out

5:30 PM Stage: Comedy of Errors The North Coast Rep Theater School presents Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their long lost twins, who go by the same names: Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

7:30 PM Film: Made in Italy Riko works in a cured meats factory, just like his father, in Reggio Emilia, Emilia-Romagna. He got married at a young age to a hairdresser, Sara. While Riko is clearly unhappy with his job, he's lucky to be working a tall, as his factory keeps letting go of its aging staff. He's living in a home he can barely afford and all he wants is to help his son move out and grow up. At times life can be difficult, but Riko refuses to yield: there are friends to count on, a marriage to be won back, and a home to save. Twenty years after their first collaboration, Stefano Accorsi and Luciano Ligabue reunite for this poignant, music-filled look at the ordinary moments that make a life.

Admission/Cost: $8 - $12

8:00 PM Stage: As You Like It Rosalind flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
