Official: Nerd HQ will NOT be happening during San Diego Comic-con

Nerd HQ
Nerd HQ is arguably the best event outside of the official San Diego International Comic-Con. Having been a mini convention located at Petco Park and San Diego’s The New Children’s Museum, Nerd HQ has become a staple of Comic-Con weekend. It has allowed fans to interact with games, celebrities, go to small and intimate panels, and take pictures with their favorite celebrity for a small donation. All proceeds from the event have gone to the non-profit Operation Smile. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Zachary Levi has officially announced that there will be no Nerd HQ during Comic-Con 2017.

In the video message posted by Nerd HQ, he said:

“As many of you know, here at Nerd HQ, every single year, we try to not only present you with Nerd HQ, the event, in San Diego during Comic-Con. We try to make it as excellent as we can, every single year. And every year, we’ve been able to figure out a way… some way, somehow, to be able to provide that to you guys. Unfortunately, this year we have to announce to you with very heavy hearts that we are not able to do NerdHQ in San Diego during Comic-Con in 2017.

It is very, very difficult for me to even announce this right now. However, please know that we, collectively, did everything we possibly could to bring you Nerd HQ, like we always want to bring you Nerd HQ. We did everything. We turned up every stone. And unfortunately, it just wasn’t on the card this year. Moreover, I am committed to whatever we can bring to you in any form in the future”

There Is Some Hope

But he did give some hope about Nerd HQ and The Nerd Machine’s presence at 2017’s San Diego Comic-Con:

“In the coming weeks, specifically this next coming week, there will be a flurry of announcements regarding various things that will be happening in San Diego during Comic-Con. My hope is that I will be able to provide to you through some of those other things. At least a modicum of what we have been able to bring to you through Nerd HQ. And I hope that for all of you that have planned and will be in San Diego during that time, or if you are still thinking about going, I hope that perhaps these other things or activities or whatever they may be will be satisfying to you and that you will be happy. And that you know that we care and that we will always care.”
