Special Friday Night Opening Festivities

You must be Pre-Registered with a four-day pass to attend the Friday night opening festivities! (No Friday passes will be sold on-site.)

The fun will start Friday, February 17th, at 7:00 pm and last until 10:00 pm.

At our special opening-night reception in the Jack Kirby themed Comic Fest Café, enjoy food, drink, music, surprise entertainments, and hanging out with artist and writer guests and your fellow fans. There will be games, prizes, and maybe even some free pop-art swag. Have a slice of cake and taste our signature Kirby-inspired drinks — the Kirby Krackle, Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four, Darkseid, and Wonder Man 2 — designed for this weekend by expert mixologist Alonso Nunez of Little Fish Comic Book Studio.

Master caricaturist Dave Stephens will also be there Friday night. If you ever wondered what you might look like as a Kirby character, this will be your chance.

You also will be able to enjoy pre-views of Artist Alley.
