Calgary Comic Con

Every year Calgary is host to one of the largest comic and pop culture festivals in Canada, Calgary Comic Con! Thousands of artists, authors and story tellers, cosplayers, artists, designers, creators and everyone in between come together for multiple days of nerding and geeking out, plus there’s celebrity guests. Comic Con Calgary of the best all ages annual events in our city.

Except that it’s not called Calgary Comic Con

It’s called Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, or even just Calgary Expo.

This is a rather small distinction, but it’s worth mentioning I think. Calgary Comic Con doesn’t do it justice because there is way more there than just comics. I’m personally not interested in comics at all, so you can see why the name might trigger me. Just start calling it Calgary Expo, at least, and we’re cool. Calgary Comic Con = NO.

Here’s some photos I’ve taken at ‘Calgary Comic Con’ /rolleyes. I hereby use it from now on sarcastically. Imagine me saying it with such tone and disdain.

Every year at Calgary Comic Con they have a costume contest. It’s one of the best things about the ‘Con in my opinion. Make sure you attend! It’s usually on Saturday’s at like 6PM in The Corral.
