      Blizzard will be celebrating Diablo's 20 year anniversary during BlizzCon. The party is taking place just outside the BlizzCon grounds and you won't need a pass to enter. At the same time this is also Blizzard's 25th anniversary.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      25 years ago, a small group of gamers set out to create the kinds of game experiences they loved playing—and Blizzard Entertainment was born. Since then, the team at Blizzard has transported millions of people around the world to fantastic worlds of fantasy and science fiction—including Diablo’s Sanctuary, which first invited players to descend into the terrifying labyrinth beneath the Tristram Cathedral 20 years ago in 1996!
      Please join us in celebrating these anniversaries on Friday, November 4 from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. in the Grand Plaza outside the Anaheim Convention Center during BlizzCon 2016. This event is open to everyone, whether you’re attending the convention or just happen to be in the neighborhood, and admission is free. We’ll also have some great food, special anniversary-themed drinks, entertainment—and even a surprise or two.
      An Epic Night of Live Music
      The main stage at the celebration will feature BlizzCon Talent Contest winners Songhammerperforming live—so grab some armor from your closet and get ready for an epic rock show.
      Friday, November 4, 2016 from 8 p.m. through 10 p.m. PT
      Anaheim Convention Center Grand Plaza
      Open space between Marriott and Hilton outside BlizzCon—no BlizzCon ticket required!
      Performance by Songhammer Specialty beverages celebrating Blizzard’s 25th and Diablo’s 20th anniversaries Food Trucks Epic Fun You’ll be celebrating the occasion alongside a fun-filled crowd of game developers, staff, and a swarm of fellow Blizzard gamers.
