“Course Of The Force” Invades SoCal For Comic-Con: Star Wars Run Hits Oceanside This Sunday
Break out your best Star Trooper costume, Star Wars is invading my neck of the woods, Oceanside, CA! On Sunday 7/14 there will be a huge event & concert at Rotary Park in Oceanside, all open to the public. There will be food/drink, giveaways & expo booths, live music and – perhaps best of all – 20,000 guests dressed up as their favorite Star Wars characters (nerd alert!). The “Conival”, as it is called, is part of a 500-mile charity relay-run from SF, through LA and on to Comic-Con.
- Date: Sunday, July 14, 2013
- Time: Conival – 11am to 4pm
- Concert – 2:30pm to 4pm
- Location: Rotary Park (Intersection of Mission Ave, & N. Pacific St.)

This is all part of a LARGER event that ends at Comic-Con: Course Of The Force.
Lucasfilm and Nerdist are putting on a 500-mile Star Wars-themed Lightsaber relay-run from San Francisco to Los Angeles and on to San Diego just in time for Comic-Con. The week-long event, called COURSE OF THE FORCE, will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. After the Oceanside leg of the race, there will be a massive “Conival” celebration and concert, open to the public. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best Star Wars garb.
