This Victoria Day long weekend, expect to see comic fans buzzing around Yaletown, exploring the works of visual artists from Canada and around the world.
The annual Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (VanCAF) is back to celebrate its six-year anniversary at the Roundhouse Community Centre, where more than 300 comic and graphic novel creators will be setting up shop.
Since arriving on the scene in 2012, the event has attracted thousands of readers in the city whether they’re comic professionals, die-hard fans or just casual readers. The two-day event, in partnership with the Vancouver Comic Arts Association and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF), features a wide variety of readings, panels and kid workshops—including a cartoonists’ exhibition.
Local and international artists like Meichi (@barelyfunctionaladult), James Lloyd, Arthur Chen, Luke Ramsey and Matt Smith will be gracing the days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Despite what it may sound like, the event is more so a literary festival than a convention so leave the cosplay at home. And if you want to check out some of the amazing artistry but are low on cash, not to worry — admission is free, and the event is opened to the public.
Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.)Roundhouse Community Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mewsvancaf.com
