Received via email, info and applications for this year’s MoCCA Fest are now available. The new venue will hold 100 more booths than the Puck Building — and they are taking applications, so get ’em in.

Exhibitor Applications & Guidelines for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art’s 2009 MoCCA Festival are available February 11, 2009 for download on the museum’s website (

Artists, writers, and publishers wishing to have a table at the 2009 Festival are encouraged to get in their applications and payment as early as possible, as well over half of vendor space has already been sold to returning exhibitors and MoCCA members.

The 2009 MoCCA Festival will take place the weekend of June 6-7 at the 69th Regiment Armory at Lexington Avenue and 25th Street in New York City. As the 69th Regiment Armory is a much larger venue, nearly 100 more exhibitors will be attending, and arranged in a more democratic manner than in previous years. The festival will be open to the public from 11:00am to 6:00pm both days. General admission is $10/day or $15/weekend but is only $10/weekend for MoCCA members.

MoCCA will begin accepting and processing new 2009 MAF Exhibitor Applications on Thursday, February 12th. Exhibitor applications arriving at the Museum before that date will be processed as if postmarked at 11:59pm on February 11th.
