Boston Kids Comics Fest @ Northeastern University

Saturday, June 3, 2023

The 3rd annual Boston Kids Comics Festival, celebrating comics for children and the love of reading, is back and in person on Saturday, June 3rd after a three-year pandemic hiatus. This is a passion project of the Ashland Library Director and the Friends of the Ashland Library are happy to be a sponsor of this event.

The premiere dedicated annual children’s comics festival in the country, BKCFest is a community celebration of comics, learning, and laughter for elementary and middle schoolers, and their parents, educators, and librarians.  As ever, BKCFest will host a marketplace of independent comics creators, spotlighting local authors and illustrators whose work ranges from hand-crafted zines to published graphic novels. Admission is free and open to all ages.   

BKCF’s free-to-all programming includes hands-on workshops, where young comics-makers can get advice and guidance from professional comics-makers as well as opportunities to draw with our exhibitors and creators. The Fest always has a host of amazing headliners, as well, so stay tuned for more information as our comic creators are confirmed. 

Learn more about the Fest on the BKCFest Website

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
