Northwest Comic Fest
Northwest Comic Fest II
Northwest Comic Festival is kicking off the 2nd annual Northwest Comic Fest in Salem, Oregon August 13th and 14th, 2016. This year our focus is on the Comics and Writers, the life blood of comics and our Pop-Culture. Just as last year Northwest Comic Fest is more than simply Comic Con, with an emphasis on the physical aspects of pop-culture from performances, tutorials, panels, and more. Of course, we know the importance of gaming, crafts, and cosplay. Wait til you see whats in store. We want to provide families, fans and soon-to-be-fans a place to come together and celebrate what they love. This isnt a Comic Con; This is a celebration that defines Comic/Pop/Geek-culture Fest.
Our goal is provide a genuinely unique opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the things they love. We are offering live performances and demonstrations, guest panels, vendors and music. Some of the acts we have booked already include; Parkour and fencing demonstrations, breakdancing superheroes and thats just the beginning as much more is being coordinated as this letter is being composed.
