Although it seems like MICE 2019 happened yesterday, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo has already announced its 2020 dates. In a series of tweets posted Monday, MICE coordinators revealed that MICE 2020 will take place October 17 and 18 at its usual location: Lesley University Hall in Porter Square in Cambridge, Mass.

Additionally, exhibitor applications open around April. Those interested in tabling at the 2020 show are encouraged to sign up for the mailing list to get exhibitor-related updates and more information.

MICE 2020 will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 17 and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 18. Presented by the Boston Comic Arts Foundation, this free comics expo is entering its 11th year; at the 10th annual show in 2019, it hosted over 200 exhibitors in addition to workshops, panels, and demonstrations.

Our Arpad Okay described last year’s show as, “magic. It’s a zine show grown up, a cocktail of love for comics and self-publishing.” We think it’s safe to say that the 2020 show will be just as great.
