Kendal’s groundbreaking International Comic Art Festival celebrates comic art from all over the world – and it’s the only event of its kind in the UK.
Each year during the festival, our town comes alive with creativity that all ages can enjoy, in venues throughout the town. The festival features international comic artists and creators, as well as live drawing events, film, exhibitions, comic trails, performances, workshops, masterclasses and family zone activities. Visitors have the chance to get up close and personal with some of the world’s best known comic artists and writers – seeing them create, hearing them speak and being inspired by an enthusiastic crowd.
We are excited to announce that the festival will be returning once again next year with confirmed dates of Friday 11th October – Sunday 13th October 2019.
