SATURDAY TIPS: DAY-OF CONVENTION DETAILS


Support our Partners:

It’s been over two long years since we have had a chance to come together for Forest City ComiCon.  We can’t wait to welcome you back!  Here’s everything you need to know as you head to the event Saturday:

Tickets ARE available at the door as well as online.  Entry is $20 for adults, kids 12 & under enter free.  There is also a family pass (2 adults, 2 youth ages 13-17) that is ONLY available online.

Getting into the show FAST: patrons with advanced tickets can make use of the priority entry.  If facing Centennial Hall that entry is the furthest left doors closest to the parking lot.  If you’re arriving early (before doors open), come to the blue Forest City ComiCon tent for check in: to get your ticket scanned and receive your wristband before joining the line for fastest entry at 10 am!

Looking for food?  You won’t need to look far!  Food trucks are out in front of Centennial Hall.

Cosplay! When traveling to the show with imitation props please store them properly for your own safety and the safety of others.  If bringing props into Centennial Hall please make sure they abide by our props policy: have any weapon-like props tagged on arrival.

Finding Your Way, Planning Your Day: PICK UP A PROGRAM!  Come up with a plan in advance of which panels & presentations you want to catch to save time (and avoid disappointment!) at the show.  See the schedule online now.

Cosplayers don’t forget about the COSPLAY REPAIR STATION at the Lindy Cosplay booth.  That’s also where you can register for the Cosplay Contest.  Remember: the COSPLAY CONTEST IS FREE OF CHARGE TO ENTER!

Photo Etiquette: Please remember, Cosplay is Not Consent: please do not touch other guests or take their photos without permission. Most cosplayers LOVE having their photo taken but want to put their best foot forward for you! Help them do this by asking permission before posing for a photo and respecting their space.

For patrons with accessibility needs with regards to stairs: please notify a nearby volunteer when accessing the main stage or main floor panel room.  There is a secondary access with ramp.  In addition, there is also an elevator connecting the main floor and lower level.

Covid Info: Forest City ComiCon follows all of the requirements laid out by the Middlesex London Health Unit and the requirements laid out by the Chief Medical Officer for Ontario. Since we are not health experts we have to rely on the mandates and directives from those organizations.

At the moment, events in our region (hockey games, concerts, etc.) as well as businesses and stores are operating without restrictions.

ENJOY YOUR DAY! Our team and volunteers are here to help you have a great morning and afternoon. Have patience: if anything is not as it should be throughout the day, mention it to the nearest volunteer and we will do everything we can to correct it as soon as possible. Make sure to check out ALL areas of the show: main floor, lower level, and Board Game Area on the second floor presented by LA Mood Comics & Games!
