Comicon returns to the Central Coast

Comicon will return to the Central Coast on May 28

After a two-year hiatus, Central Coast Comicon – the region’s biggest celebration of everything and anything pop culture – is set to return on Saturday, May 28.

With the majority of attractions and entertainment included in the ticket price, the interactive family event is a colourful, creative festival for young, old, and everyone in-between.

Pop culture enthusiast and Comicon regular, Nathan Feick, said the festival was a chance for Coasties to “fly the geek flag”, embracing the spirit of favourite super heroes, video games, television and anime.

“At the same time we can support those local artists and vendors who share our passion,” he said.

“Regional Youth Support Services (RYSS) have made this an annual event that is marked in the calendar for many people throughout NSW; after two years away we are so happy to see it return for 2022.”

Attractions on offer will include: Cosplay/costumes; comics; anime; Star Wars lightsaber lessons; Disney and Lego displays and workshops, sci-fi-fantasy and a medieval battle re-enactment.

There will be an archery attack, video gaming, virtual reality, Battle Royale laser tag and manga art, along with a vintage pin-up pageant.

Attendees will be able to take part in vintage arcade games, circus craft, tabeltop gaming, drawing and craft workshops.

Also on site will be food trucks, merchandise stalls and live music.

The event will raise much needed funds for Regional Youth Support Services, so they can continue to provide support for young people across the entire Central Coast.

Central Coast Comicon will take place at the Entertainment Grounds, West Gosford, from 10am-3pm on Saturday, May 28.
