LPL Comic Con Call for Vendors
LPL Comic Con 2017
Lynchburg Public Library
Saturday, May 13, 2017
1 PM – 4 PM
The Lynchburg Public Library is excited to announce that we will be holding our first comic con on Saturday, May 13, 2017! Comic cons are events where people come together to celebrate being a fan of just about everything in pop culture (comic books, books, movies, TV shows, etc.). This fun, free event is open to families and adults! We will have superheroes in costume, The USS Heimdal of Starfleet, face painting, tabletop gaming, costume contests and a costume parade, a cosplay workshop, and much more! The comic con will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and it will be located at the Lynchburg Public Library on Memorial Avenue in Lynchburg, VA.
We encourage local businesses, authors, and artists to apply early for a table at the event. For vendors, we invite businesses that sell goods that are relevant to the overall themes of comic cons (pop culture collectibles, accessories, home décor, clothing, etc.). For authors and artists, we are looking for those who have considerable experience working in the science fiction, fantasy, or comic book genres. Authors and artists should have books, prints, or other artistic endeavors available to sell at the event. If you are interested in conducting a short program on writing or drawing, we would also be highly interested in hearing from you.
For more information, please call the library at 434-455-6300 and ask to speak with Adult Services Supervisor, Leann Underwood, or Youth Services Supervisor, Beverly Blair. Potential vendors may either print off a Vendor Application and bring it into the library/mail it in or fill out the Online Vendor Application. All applications must be received by April 1, 2017. We look forward to hearing from you!
