Niagara Falls Comic Con Is Fast Approaching!


Niagara Falls Comic Con 2015

It’s the Niagara Falls event many people have been anticipating since last year’s show, and this year’s event proves to be even BIGGER! It’s the Niagara Falls Comic Con! Thousands of comic book collectors, horror, fantasy and sci-fi lovers, artists and everyone in between will be lining up for this event, at more than 200,000 square feet. They have exhibitors, comic books, cosplayers and cosplay contests, movie screenings, celebrity autographs and photo-ops, workshops, Falls Horror Fest and much, much more at the Scotiabank Convention Centre located at 6815 Stanley Avenue right here in Niagara Falls. It’s only a 5 minute drive from the “Street of Fun by the Falls”, Clifton Hill.

“Our main goal each year is to listen to our fans and improve on the previous year,” said Chris Dabrowski, Show Manager for the Niagara Falls Comic Con. “We’ve expanded again and have booked out the whole convention centre, including a 1000 seat theatre, that we will utilize for Q&A sessions, workshops and more,” he added.

New this year is an 80′s Arcade Zone that will include more than 30 retro coin-op stand up arcade games. Movie cars booked include the Bat Copter from the 1966 Batman TV series, and a replica of the General Lee and Knight Rider KITT cars.

The event has expanded their featured artist offering, which now includes more than 85 featured artists and independent publishers. Featured artists include: Legendary writer Gerry Conway, award-winning artists Darwyn Cooke, and David & Meredith Finch to name a few.

Returning again this year is the “Falls Horror Fest”, which features more than 5000 square feet of horror exhibits, movie props, workshops, celebrities, costumes, and Q&A’s.

“Niagara Falls Comic Con is an event the provides people of all ages (and families) a fun and entertaining weekend with lots to see and do in a very relaxed environment.
