USS Hornet Museum
Comic Convention with Anime, Fantasy, Gaming, Sci-Fi, and TV programming
Come aboard for the most unique pop culture convention on the Bay!
The USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum is proud to present CarrierCon, a convention celebrating cosplay, tabletop gaming, and Western and Japanese media. CarrierCon is an opportunity for people of all ages to share their love of cosplay and pop culture media while supporting a Bay Area local museum.
The USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that utilizes historic aircraft carrier USS Hornet and the collections, exhibitions and educational programming to promote awareness and understanding of history, science, technology, and service. All proceeds made from CarrierCon go to support the USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum.
CarrierCon is a way for the Museum to engage with new audiences and broaden awareness of the Hornet Museum. It was created and is run by the Museum Staff and our Volunteers to combine and share our and our guests' passions for popular culture and history. Pop culture superstars from movies to television shows to video games have all pulled heavily from military and Navy ships, uniforms, and general aesthetics and we're proud to show you why when you come aboard for cosplay photography and general enjoyment! CarrierCon exists to educate about these influences as much as it exists as a celebration of popular culture.
