Toronto Comics Art Festival Director Chris Butcher has a big round-up, thank you post that reveals that this years events drew a total of 15,000 people to the various venues. He also reveals that next year’s show will be held May 5-6:

So the big news that everyone wants to know is where and when? We’ve answered the where part—TCAF 2012 will be continue to occur at Toronto Reference Library and The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon—and now it comes down to when. After much discussion internally and with TPL staff, we’ve decided that TCAF 2012 will occur on Saturday May 5 and Sunday May 6, 2012. Exhibitor Applications for 2012 will open on Monday, August 1st at www.TorontoComics.com.


  1. It breaks my heart just a little that TCAF is scheduled for the same weekend as Free Comic Book Day. Owning a store, that makes it almost impossible for me to go.

    Ah, well.
