Boise Comic Arts Festival 2022 (BCAF X) Frequently Asked Questions

What is BCAF X?

Boise Comic Arts Festival is a three-day comics celebration that includes presentations, performances, panel discussions, workshops, cosplay contests, gaming, and an Artists’ Alley with vendors, exhibitors, and local & national comic creators. This year we’re also adding an additional day with programming for librarians and educators.


Because this year we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the festival…and because we’re totally metal!

How much does it cost to attend?

BCAF X is FREE to attend!

Will there be Guest Creators this year?

Yes! Several, in fact. Including the return of dog cosplay. Details will be available soon.
