Comic Gong 2019

Sat 11 May

Comic Gong is Wollongong’s original pop culture festival!

Comic Gong is Wollongong’s original pop culture festival. This annual one-day event celebrates a love of comics, graphic novels, gaming and cosplay throughout the Illawarra.

The Wollongong Town Hall will be bustling with trade stalls where you can buy anything from Pop! vinyls, comics, badges and t-shirts to Star Wars figures, posters or even a new magic wand. Come and meet local comic artists in Artist’s Alley.

The cosplay competition, the panel discussions and the draw off – where two cartoon artists will attempt to one-up each other with their drawing skills in front of a crowd will be taking place in the Art Gallery.

Batman (with his Batmobile), the crowd favourite Rock and Roll Wrestlers and the medieval skills of the Society for Creative Anachronism will be in the Art’s Precinct along with the Sons of Obi Wan who will help you brush up your light sabre skills. The library host Arcade Alley, Project Bucephalus’ Lego wars, face painting, UOW’s Early Start and more. Dust off your costume and come and join in.

This is an inclusive, free event for everyone.
