Comic-Con International is staying at the San Diego Convention Center through 2021, Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced Friday.

The popular entertainment and culture convention is San Diego’s largest event each year and has called San Diego home since 1970, but its agreement to stay in San Diego was set to expire after next year’s convention. Instead, Comic-Con renewed its agreement with the city for three more years.

Comic-Con is staying in San Diego until 2021.”
