September 2021

Happy to announce that we're back at Heritage Hall (3102 Main St), starting on September 12. Guests are Ken Steacy, Joan Steacy, Simon Roy, Randy Stone, John Ward, and Soaring Penguin Press. Show hours are 11AM - 5PM, and admission is $5, with kids under 14 getting in for free.

Following current provincial guidelines, we are requesting that all show attendees be masked while in the Hall, for everyone's safety. (We will have masks at the door.) There may be a limit to the number of people allowed in the room at any given time. Hand cleaning stations will be available in the building, and there will be ongoing cleaning of the washrooms and high contact areas throughout the day. Current plan is to use one door for entry and another for exit.

Finally, the Hall is still undergoing roof replacement and seismic upgrades. This doesn't affect the room we use, but the exterior of the building is surrounded by wood and scaffolding, and the roof is under a white cover. The construction probably won't be completed by Sept 12, so this is just a heads up for when you arrive.

Starting back up...

 

Things are coming together and at the point where I can announce that Vancouver Comicon will be returning to Heritage Hall on Sunday, September 12. Guests will be announced soon; we’re sticking with BC-based creators for this first show back.

 

A COVID Safety Plan is still being finalized (apparently the government may change things again at the start of September), but we are currently planning on setting up one door for entry and another for exit, hand cleaning stations, and ongoing cleaning of the washrooms. All attendees must wear a mask when in the Hall.

 

The Hall is still undergoing seismic upgrades and roof replacement, and the building will most likely still be under wraps and look like a construction site in September.

 

Currently, we’re taking bookings for creator and publisher spaces. Dealer spaces will open up when the guest announcement is made. If you’re a creator or small-press publisher and want to book space, email lswong@uniserve.com for information.
