Fun, Unique Things to Do this April in San Jose

Not every date experience needs to be traditional or (potentially) boring. There are often events going on that defy the usual expectations, which can lead to some great times. Here are a couple rolling through the San Jose area in the coming weeks.

Big WOW! ComicFest - San JoseConvention Center - April 18th & 19th

San Jose has its own great comic and geek convention, so there’s no need to travel all the way to Frisco anymore. There will be the usual line-up of celebrity guests, cosplay, gaming, panels, Q&As and more. So if you’re beginning to feel like it’s time for a convention weekend, look no further than the third week of April.

San Jose Fantasy Faire - GuadalupeRiverPark - April 11th & 12th

This magical event brings out hundreds of people, all dressed in costumes themed to fantasy and mythical worlds. You’ll see goblins, fairies, gods, pirates and all sorts of other interesting characters as they wander around, experiencing the live music, the delicious food, the guests and all the other family-friendly activities they have to offer.
