Hello Hill Country Comicon Family!
Last week we officially announced that our April 4th-5th show would be postponed due to the safety and concern for our attendees, vendors and all involved in making Hill Country Comicon happen. We’ve worked closely with the City of New Braunfels and the Convention Center, looking at options for our show and we have decided on the new date.
Hill Country Comicon Year 2 will be bringing back all of the excitement and fun on November 28th and 29th!
With many shows having to reschedule, it has put a strain on available venue dates and options. We want HCC to happen as soon as possible, but also need to work around the unique climate the world is currently experiencing. The November date aligns well with our family focus in bringing everyone together to celebrate all things nerdy! Yes, this is Black Friday weekend and what better way to get ready for the holidays than a show full of amazing ART, TOYS, COLLECTIBLES, GAMES and CELEBS! After you’ve gotten tired of turkey leftovers, come on out to Hill Country Comicon and enjoy New Braunfels’ Premier Pop Culture Event! You’re sure to find the perfect gift(s) for your family/friends and why not spoil yourself while you’re at it!
Those who have already purchased tickets to the original April show will have admission to the November 28th-29th show. If you are not able to make it to our November show, we don’t want you to miss out on the fun and will honor your unused ticket to our 2021 show!
Those who have purchased a table(s) for our April Show will have their table(s) saved for the November 28th-29th show. Please reach out to us if there are any questions or concerns.We hope you all can make it out to the event, thank you for the support and understanding during these difficult times. Situations like this help reinforce the important things in life and it allows us to stand up as a community to overcome any challenges that we face. We hope to help provide some relief and entertainment to the city, the comic community and to our Hill Country Comicon fans! See you in November!

Precautions we're taking
- Increased cleaning/disinfecting on all high-volume touch-point areas
- Onsite Health and Wellness area
- Individual use hand sanitizers for attendees provided by Riverside ER
- Onsite Medical Support
- Available First Aid Kits
- Availability of disinfection and sanitizing materials for public use
- Signage reminding attendees of hygiene recommendations
With these additional safety measures, we believe that Hill Country Comicon Year 2 will deliver all of the fun and excitement you’ve come to expect. Hill Country Comicon is a labor of love with over 75 staff and volunteers, year-round planning and 100+ local artists and vendors that help to bring this show together. We understand the importance of a successful show to the city, hotels, vendors, artists and our partners. We want to take all steps to provide an amazing experience for all involved.
We’ve also partnered up with Riverside ER to setup a booth where they can address any concerns or questions along with sharing best practices. They’ll be providing free individual sized hand sanitizers for additional protection.
Precautions you can take
The best thing you can do to prepare and protect yourself is to practice good hygiene and take the same health precautions you would to prevent the spread of the seasonal flu.
- Be wise, sanitize! Wash your hands often with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available.
- Sneeze into your elbows, shirt or use a tissue; don’t use your hands and remember to properly dispose of your tissue immediately. Avoid shaking hands as well.
- Avoid close contact (6 feet) with a sick person if you can. Flu droplets can spread in the air through coughing, sneezing and even just talking.
- Don’t touch your face or mouth, especially if you’ve been around someone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Clean and disinfect areas and surfaces that are touched a lot, especially items and areas shared like doorknobs, handles, and light switches, as well as other hard surfaces in your workspace and frequently used items like your phone.
- If you are sick, avoid contact with others and stay home.
Hearing ongoing news reports about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be concerning. As the situation continues to evolve, we want to make sure you have the information you need to stay safe and healthy. The City of New Braunfels is being responsive to the citizens of our community and surrounding areas. We would like all citizens to know that our first-responders continue to monitor COVID-19 (widely known as Coronavirus) and are prepared to address if there is an incident of local transmission. At this time New Braunfels has no cases of COVID-19. At this time, the CDC considers the immediate U.S. health risk from the Coronavirus to be low and the risk for all Texans remains low.
