SHOW OFF YOUR COSPLAY!

Cosplay, or costume play, has become a huge part of every comic and pop culture convention. We highly encourage fans to express themselves at Tucson Comic-Con by dressing up as their favorite characters! You may even make some new friends who share your passion! If you have a competitive streak, you may also consider entering the annual Tucson Comic-Con Cosplay Contest. New for this year, we’ll also be holding a separate Youth Costume Contest.

Let’s play it safe! Please help us by doing your part in upholding a safe and welcoming environment for all cosplayers at Tucson Comic-Con. Refer to Convention Policies & Codes of Conduct and Cosplay is Not Consent for more information.

CRAFTING

Local and regional craftsmen come to share their unique works of art at Tucson Comic-Con. Craftsmen can often be found exhibiting in the main vendor hall at the show. Be sure to check them out and support the arts! Please view the Booth and Artist Alley directories to find your favorite vendors!

KIDS & FAMILY ZONE

Sometimes, you may need to escape from the insanity of the main convention when you have your little ones with you. The Kids & Family Zone at Tucson Comic-Con is a place of safe, lighthearted fun for children aged 12 and under and their families. Your kids will be able to play with toys, read books, color and participate in arts and crafts.

Note: The Kids & Family Zone is not a daycare service. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

PANELS / Q&A

Have you ever wondered what makes your favorite creative pro tick? Maybe you have questions about how certain things work in their industries. Every year at Tucson Comic-Con, we assemble a variety of great panels and Q&A sessions to connect the fans with the pros!

SHOPPING!

The Main Exhibit Floor at Tucson Comic-Con will host dozens of vendors from all over the country that sell a wide array of comic books, graphic novels, anime, toys, collectibles, to prints, posters, t-shirts, movies, music, etc. You may just find that rare book you’ve been after for years! Many artists and creators also offer show exclusives that won’t be available anywhere else!
