Kids Con and Fandom Finale

Fandom Fest officially begins Friday, April 27 with Kids Con – because you’re never too young to be a fan! Join us for a kids-only day of crafts, costumes, games and more.

Then bring the whole family back on Saturday, April 28 for the main event – Fandom Finale!  Whether it’s Marvel or manga, video games or Game of Thrones – we’re taking over the Library and celebrating all the fandoms.  Meet our featured guests: four-time Eisner award-winning artist Gene Ha, and the authors of “Red, White, and Who: The Story of Doctor Who in America.”  From panels to Artist Alley, games and trivia to crafts, it’ll be a day to gather and geek out with other fans.  Costumes are highly encouraged!

No need to purchase tickets for Fandom Fest – it’s free!
