London, Ontario, Canada
Big changes are coming to Forest City ComiCon in 2019 including a new summer date and a change in venue that will see the show return to its roots at Centennial Hall in Downtown London. The sixth-annual celebration of nerd and geek culture will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. The show is an all-ages comic con event featuring artists, exhibitors, cosplay, vendors, panels presentations, board games, video game tournaments, and more.
“We are going to break out of the convention model of rising costs and the increasing ticket prices that the convention world is stuck in: we’re getting back to our roots,” explained organizing committee member John Houghton. “Fans can expect an amazing show, with affordable ticket prices, great programming, top-notch cosplay, and lots of exhibitors.”
The show is also moving into the summer from its previous date in September to take advantage of the great weather and an open space in the regional convention schedule. Heading into its sixth year, the first record-shattering Forest City ComiCon was held at Centennial Hall back in 2014.
“In many ways, the 2014 show was the most fun we ever had running the event. In the four years since, our group has learned a lot about how to operate a show, what works and what does not,” added Houghton. “We know can put on an excellent event at the venue and are excited to be back at Centennial Hall to put on a fun, affordable show.”
Tickets for the event as well as guest news and event schedule are coming soon. Exhibitor registration is open now at www.forestcitycomicon.ca.
