Clallam Bay Comicon HOME

RAINCON AND THE CLALLAM BAY COMICON MAY BE RETURNING! If it does, it's coming back July 7-9, 2023, during Sekiu Fun Days 
Links to other Peninsular (Olympic and Kitsap) Comics, gaming, cosplay, maker conventions:

Because we lost our "convention hotel" (B&B) when the owner took a well-deserved retirement, and I'm the Fairy Godmother for SquatchConPA, Clallam Bay Comicon is on hold for the forseeable future. But I'm leaving everything in black below, so anybody who wants to hold their own comicon can copy the basics and use it to hold their own. Send me an invite when you do!

Dealer contracts: THIS PAGE. Payment cancellation deadline is May 1. You are expected to know and be responsible for your professional and licensing obligations for use of copyright, food sales, taxes, etc. Participants will help clean and straighten hall after show closes Sunday; keep the Lion's club happy!

So glad we came up and listened to Jake. Got to visit with you briefly, and we'll see what we can make happen in Forks. I think Evan and I have the outline of a plan. GREAT JOB DONNA. Glad that you have continued to do this much needed event!
