About This Convention
To celebrate 25 years of unswerving and enthusiastic service to the comic book industry, the Midwest Comic Book Association (MCBA) is pleased to announce that the 25th Anniversary MCBA Comic Carnival will take place May 18 & 19, 2013, 10AM to 5PM both days at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, in the Grandstand, at 1265 Snelling Avenue, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55108.

Expect the unexpected at the 2013 SpringCon Carnival! The clock is ticking and the fuse is burning down to igniting 840 minutes of red hot MCBA comic book action the likes of which this community has never seen!

“SpringCon has evolved into a 840 minute regional nexus of all of the things that make the world of analog and digital comic books so very compelling and relevant!” said Nick Postiglione, Co-Director of the all volunteer MCBA, “Over the years, SpringCon has been built around the concept of developing an interactive community and providing opportunities for all aspects of our growing community to interface in a welcoming, energetic and encouraging environment and now is the time to try expand our efforts and see where our journey will take us.?

The 25th Anniversary 2013 MCBA Comic Carnival will feature a festive 100,000 square foot atmosphere that will truly acknowledges and celebrates our long standing heritage of welcoming community, reputation for being a breeder reactor for comic creators of all types (Including superstar creators, working professionals, up and comers, Independent & Alternative creators, webcomicers, self-publishers, mini-comic folks, small press, and all creative and format points in between!), having a dynamic and growing fan base, and a huge collection of all sorts of hucksters, lovable and otherwise!

New and exciting creative alliances will be formed, collector dreams will be recognized or dashed, new friendships will be forged in the fires of common interests, newbies will be welcomed to worlds they never knew existed, local charities will be benefited, role playing costume characters will be masters of all they survey, creative types will be inspired to new heights and all will be as it should. Something for everyone and everyone welcome!

    Hello: Stupid question by first time attendee but is the entire theme mainly just comic books? I ask because I’m interested in browsing vintage toys and collectibles for purchase and was not sure if exhibitors are sticking to just comics (which is totally cool too). Thanks!

      I attended SpringCon last year and I observed all manner of memorabilia–posters, movie props, everything. I think you’ll find this convention suitable for your needs!
