The time is nigh, comic book fans! The fourth annual Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival kicks off this Saturday, Nov. 5, at 10 a.m., at the Clark County Library (1401 E. Flamingo Road). It’s entirely FREE, and all ages are encouraged to enjoy the festivities. What festivities, you ask? Well, you can check out all the details of our Programming Schedule, our Exhibitors, and our special Guests, but let’s try to help you out a little further with a quick FAQ-style guide to help you navigate the six-hour extravaganza:
Where do I park?
The Clark County Library has plenty of parking in its main lot, which is just south of the building. Parking is also allowed along Escondido Street, but be aware that some areas are designated for our food truck vendors.
How do I get in?
The main entrance to the Comic Book Festival is on the west side of the Clark County Library, near Flamingo Road. You’ll see tents, tables, and colorful characters all the way out to the sidewalk, so you’ll know when you’re there. Admission to the event is free; however, if you pre-registered for a VIP badge, make sure you bring your printed confirmation/ticket, and stop by the registration table just outside the main doors to pick up your badge and swag bag.
Where are the panels held? Where do I see the movie? Where do I get my comics signed?
A schedule of programs will be handed out as you enter the festival, and ample signage will help you find your way. We have plenty of volunteers to help you should you need additional direction, but don’t fret — this isn’t San Diego Comic-Con.
Will there be food or concessions?
Ben’s BBQ and Smokehouse food truck will be street-side with smoky goodness. If that’s not up your alley, there are many dining options within a block or two of the library, including Baja Fresh, Long John Silver’s, Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe, Raising Cane’s and Blueberry Hill.
Can we wear costumes?
Yes, please! However, no weapons of any kind will be allowed, replicas or otherwise. And remember, this is a FAMILY event, so leave the Bomb Queen cosplay for the fetish balls, OK?
Is photography/videography allowed?
For personal purposes, sure. If you’re planning to use the images for commercial purposes or are a member of the media, contact us first.
Anything else I’m forgetting?
