If you live in Silicon Valley and have always wanted to go to San Diego for Comic-Con International but could never make it down, then some good news for you: Silicon Valley will hold the very first Silicon Valley Comic Con in 2016. According to an announcement made on Friday, the event will be brought to the Valley by none other than Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak and Marvel Comics presient and chairman Stan Lee.

“In life, the most important thing is to have fun, and Silicon Valley Comic Con will be the place to experience all your favorite things at one great show,” said Wozniak in a statement. “Today, technology is pop culture, in Silicon Valley and around the globe. Entertainment and innovation inspire and bring so much joy to the world, and I’m so excited that we will showcase both at Silicon Valley Comic Con. It’s finally the Age of the Geek, and we’re ready to celebrate!”

Much like the Comic-Cons held in San Diego and New York, the Silicon Valley Comic Con will feature various Hollywood celebrities from nerd-worty shows, along with appearances from various tech leaders. It’s great news for the Silicon Valley-area, which lost San Francisco’s Wonder Con to Anaheim, CA back in 2012. Set to take place in March 19 to March 20 in 2016, the Silicon Valley event will be held in San Jose, CA at the San Jose Convention Center.
