Library Comic Con 2017


Calling all superheroes, supervillains, super friends and super foes – your summer just got a whole lot better.

Thanks to your enthusiasm and support, the Boise Public Library’s annual Comic Con is now a TWO-DAY affair!

Slip into the nearest phone booth, don your cape, tights, and mask, and head to downtown Boise for a fun-filled
celebration of comics and comics culture. Costumes are strongly encouraged at this FREE family-friendly event!

Live Cosplay Contest and Ball

Show us what you got! Calling all Schwifties, Duelists, Hunters, Trekkies, Sherlockians, Tributes, Browncoats, Whovians, Scoobies…you get the idea.

We’re having our first-ever LIVE cosplay contest for Library Comic Con 2017! You (or your group) will get to suit up and strut your stuff for our panel of judges. Dust off your sewing kit, warm up that glue gun, and get crafting! Your homemade costume could win fame, glory, and of course — prizes.

After the contest, we’re throwing an all-ages Cosplay Ball to celebrate! Come dance the night away with us at downtown Boise’s El Korah Shrine.

We have 120 spots available, so you’ll want to pre-register before Library Comic Con in your age group (kids 12 and under, teens 13-17, adults 18+).

More? You Want More?

More information, including our list of distinguished guests and panelists, is coming soon, so check back often!
