Graphic-Con 2017 will be held on June 10th, 2017 at the Sudbury Arena.

Graphic-Con is dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, graphic novels, comics, fan culture and related popular art forms, through the presentation of a fan convention for the Greater Sudbury community and Northern Ontario in honor to celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of graphic novels/comics to literacy, art and fan culture.

Nonstop fun - over 8 hours of events, panels, workshops, scheduled games, art, a stage with pop culture events, and a costume contest - all included in the price of admission. Graphic-Con provides a family-friendly environment that is welcoming to all. Our vision has proven successful and we have been experiencing consistent growth each year.

Graphic-Con is a nonprofit event presented by the Greater Sudbury Public Library and LaunchPad Creative.
