DATES TO KNOW
June 20th-21st, 2015 - Derby City Comic Con (Year 5)
November 21st, 2015 - Cavalcade of Comics (Year 2)

Following the success of our first Cavalcade of Comics we are thrilled to announce that the event will be returning to the Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion in 2015 on November 21st!

That said, it's now time to fire up the fun as the seven month race to Derby City Comic Con 2015 begins. Two days, a brand new 65,000 square foot show floor at the Kentucky International Convention Center and the biggest and best Derby City Comic Con yet awaits June 20th and 21st!

Thank You, Sincerely, For Making Cavalcade A Success!

To say that we here at Derby City Comic Con were thrilled with the first year of our Cavalcade of Comics would be an understatement! First, we thank each and every guest who visited and enjoyed the day at Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion. The crowd was solid and seemed to sincerely enjoy the event. Next, we want to thank each and every vendor and exhibitor who took part in the show. You took a chance with us and now you can say your were there when this secondary Derby City event started.

Cavalcade of Comics was a bit of an experiment for our company. We here at Derby City wanted to see if a pre-holiday, retailer focused event was something that would make a nice companion to our ever growing June convention. It was pitched as an event that would keep Derby City in the public eye half way between each convention year and give people a chance to shop geek and shop local.

Did the experiment work? Turns out the answer to that was "yes". Not only was the crowd fun to see but they came ready to shop and made our vendors happy. Along the way, local comic creators were able to tell their stories, meet new audiences and also have some fun. This event did exactly what we hoped.

Will it be returning in 2015? Absolutely. Stay tuned...

Cavalcade of Comics Ticket Price? Just $5 per person!

DERBY CITY MAKES IT EASY TO JOIN THE FUN AND COME SHOPPING
DURING OUR CAVALCADE OF COMICS ON NOVEMBER 22ND!

A lot of conventions and gatherings charge a fair amount for you to see the show. We at Derby City Comic Con have always prided ourselves by keeping entrance costs VERY LOW so that families and fans can come to our event, not feel challenged by the price at the door and still have plenty of pocket money left to support our creators and vendors.

Given the more independent creator and retail focused nature of Cavalcade of Comics, we felt it was doubly important to keep prices down. A single day ticket to Derby City Comic Con this past June was just $10. Since we're roughly half way to our 2015 show, we set the ticket price for Cavalcade of Comics at half that price. That's just $5 per person with children 10 and under admitted for free (with a paying adult).

Online ticket sales for the Cavalcade of Comics begins October 1st.

What is Derby City Comic Con's Cavalcade of Comics?

DERBY CITY COMIC CON'S 2ND SHOW...

Coming to Louisville's
Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion
November 22nd 2014!

Due in no small part to the HUGE success of our primary show, Derby City Comic Con is exceedingly pleased to announce that we will be back in November with our SECOND event for comic fans to enjoy!

Taking place Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 at Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion (9700 Bluegrass Parkway, Louisville, KY) the Cavalcade of Comics will be a companion show to our annual primary convention and offers a unique mix of comic book focused fun to enjoy.

Show owner Chuck Moore explains...

"We wanted to create a slightly smaller event which we could position roughly half way between each year's primary Derby City Comic Con. This event will be a celebration of regional art creators and it will also have more of a retail and shopping focus. The Cavalcade of Comics will feature a showcase an amazing tapestry of comic creators and also serve as a holiday shopping experience leading up to the nationwide retail shopping event, Black Friday! We're inviting fans to come get their geek on and shop local for the holidays!"

Derby City Comic Con' s Cavalcade of Comics will serve up 21,800 square feet of exhibitor space at the Ramada Plaza Louisville (already home to such great locals shows as the Louisville Arcade Expo and Conglomeration). In this new show space, we will ring the exhibit hall with a solid mix of regional comic creators and artists. In the middle of the show floor we will pack in a wide mix of comic book, toy and related geek culture focused vendors for you to enjoy. This will be a spot where you can shop for holidays, support local artists and mix in a convention environment with other comic book enthusiasts.

Why would you shop anywhere else?

Derby City Comic Con Will Be BIGGER and SOONER in 2015!

Our flagship convention returns to the
Kentucky International Convention Center

once again in June 2015!

We're also leaving behind the historic Hall 1AB (where we've housed our show
for the last four years) and moving to Hall 2D in 2015!

This means our convention floor is GROWING from

Much more on this massive event will be unveiled over the next few months!

We're thrilled to have this MUCH NEEDED room to grow Derby City Comic Con and look forward to sharing an impressive convention with comic book fans once again in 2015. For this fifth year we're going to be HUGE!

On the date move for 2015, we realize that moving one week earlier may be a surprise to some but convention organizers gave it a lot of thought before making the shift. What was the reason? For those of you who don't already know, Louisville is set to play host to a city-wide event beginning in 2015 which is devouring all available hotel rooms during our traditional "end of the month" convention weekend. As such, we decided to put the needs of our traveling creators, vendors and out of town guests first and make sure they had a place to stay for the weekend. This resulted in the date change this year and for the foreseeable future.

We can't wait to unveil our plans for the fifth anniversary of Derby City Comic Con. If you think you know our show, you haven't seen ANYTHING yet!
