VanCAF is meant for everyone, whether they’re comic professionals, die-hard fans, or casual readers. For this reason, admission to all events is completely free, and participating fees for exhibitors are kept as low as possible. The festival seeks to support Vancouver comics, encouraging local creators and stories. The show has enjoyed a growing audience since 2012, attracting 3,200 attendees with 92 exhibitors in its first year. In May 2017, we boasted an astonishing 10,300 attendees, and 260+ exhibitors, spanning across two halls. The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is managed and organized by the Vancouver Comic Arts Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting local cartoonists with the community.
