When is this exciting event happening, you ask? Why I would be glad to tell you! The amazing event is happening on Sunday, Feb 17th and Monday, Feb 18th for 2019

Where is this spectacular event being taken place? Mostly all the action is happening at the GVC Building (Garden Valley Collegiate), which is at 736 Main St.

Comic Con is a place where nerds/geeks/fans can roam amok in an outfit of choice (be it normal garb, or fictional character of choice).

It is also a place to buy fictional geeky merchandise (like comic books, figurines of action heroes and characters, shirts, etc).

Basically, it’s a place to escape the normal trudge of reality, and relax among fellow like-minded individuals.

Aside from the all-day action you’re getting at the gaming area in the Zone, Merchandise, and sprinkled timed activities (Panel Discussions, Demonstrations, the Cosplay Contest, the various Tournaments, etc);

You can always just chill around at the tables near the entrance (we set them up for the more chatty of us), and hangout with other Comic Con’ers (is that even a word?), drink some pop/coffee, have some snacks, n’ relax!

Unfortunately we gotta get the boring stuff out of the way. We’ll keep it simple though.

Harassment: If you’re coming to treat someone poorly (harassment), judge them, harm them, or make them feel uncomfortable in any way; Don’t come! Because then we gotta give you the boot. Treat everyone with respect, and we’ll all have an awesome time!

Responsibility: We won’t be held responsible or liable if you hurt yourself or lose something. But if you do lose something at Comic Con and we find it, we’ll put it at the entrance at the registration tables.. But if we/you can’t find it, we can't replace it (sorry!). That also goes with having your stuff damaged. Like your car, your phone, yourself (we definitely can’t replace you!), etc.

Vendors: Shortest section ever.. Wait for it… Don’t sell anything illegal! .. annnd no pornography (porn, pr0ns, etc, etc).

Taking pics: When taking pics of cosplayers (people that are dressed up), please ask them beforehand!

Gotta tell us something? Let us know with some feedback!

Cosplaying is an important part of Comic Con. Comic Con is a place where you can be free to dress up (cosplay) as a character from a fictional universe.

This allows geeks/nerds to roam about unjudged by other like-minded people in the building.

To be announced!

We appreciate the handmade costumes, and that's the focus! But you can't come in with “no” costume if you catch our drift. Make sure you cover up the privates! We don't wanna see your 'stuff'.

Besides, it's cold outside. Since there may be any age of human, young and old, be wary of said eyes.

Let's see some awesome well built costumes! There IS a costume contest after all, and you CAN win money (yeah, you read that right).

We know you'd like to come in swords, and guns blazing, but not everybody appreciates your real sword collection (they may be awesome and all..).

Make sure your props look like toys, 'cause we don't want any global wide-spread zombie panic.

Foam swords, toy guns, etc. (if it looks like a gun, make sure it's one of those toy guns with the coloured tip at the end).

You can make toy-ish weapons look awesome!
