Announcing TCAF 2023 Dates, Exhibitor Applications Open!
Toronto, ON — September 20, 2022 — The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is thrilled to announce that TCAF is returning to its Spring dates! The in-person festival will return to the Toronto Reference Library from April 29-30, 2023, and the online festival will run from April 21 to May 7, 2023.
Encouraged by the reception of last year’s hybrid festival, TCAF will continue to offer both in-person and digital programming and marketplaces to offer a unique and global festival. Our online programming will have expanded dates to increase festival access, with our digital marketplace running for over 2 weeks.
Based in the Toronto Public Library’s Reference Library at 789 Yonge Street, as well as neighbouring venues, TCAF 2023 will spotlight hundreds of creators, publishers, and comics organizations from around the world. Featured programming will include talks, panels, classic Q&As, workshops, kids-specific events, and so much more! Professional and industry development programming will also return, with full announcements coming later this fall.
Applications to exhibit at TCAF 2023 are open until November 14, 2022. Exhibitors will choose a preference of exhibiting online or in-person, or both! International exhibitors are welcome. CLICK HERE TO APPLY.
