The Toronto Comic Arts Festival

With over 400 cartoonists from more than 20 countries on their way to Toronto this May, we’re getting ready celebrate the very best in comics, graphic novels, bandes dessinées, and manga! Prepare yourself for a week of readings, launches, and art events culminating in a massive, FREE two-day exhibition.

Every year the Toronto Comic Arts Festival showcases Canada’s incredible comics talent on a world stage by promoting some of our best and brightest creators and publishers, and inviting the attention of the global cartooning community. The 2019 programme builds on our previous successes, with a continued commitment to offer more engaging programming, in multiple formats, focusing on compelling and challenging work being made across the world. Art sales and exhibition, increased programming, and gallery shows are once again at the core of the 2019 programme.

This year , TCAF will present its first-ever official Young Adult programming stream and Featured Guests for the 2019 Edition highlighting a strong array of debuting work for readers across the Young Adult age-range of 12 years old to 18 years old.
