The Toronto Comics Arts Festival have announced their 2022 dates, as well as their intention to return as an in-person event. TCAF 2022 is planned for June 17-19, offering “a unique combination of both real-life and virtual events.”
Like most conventions, TCAF cancelled their live event in 2020 when the pandemic struck. Last year they held a completely virtual event.
“Following on the success of last year’s extensive range of virtual programming, TCAF will bring together the best of both worlds for 2022, offering one-of-a-kind virtual events alongside a new and improved online marketplace for global visitors, as well as the triumphant return of in-person programming, events and creator exhibition for local attendees,” their statement reads.
TCAF 2022 will be held in the Toronto Public Library’s Reference Library at 789 Yonge Street, as well as neighboring venues. According to the announcement, the event will include talks, panels, Q&As, workshops, kids-specific events and more, like it has in prior years.
Creators interested in exhibiting at TCAF, either in-person or virtually, can apply through Feb. 7 via the online application.
