About This Convention
The Boston SouthCoast Comic Con & Anime Fest is a family friendly entertainment event featuring all things that appeal to fans of Comics, Collectibles, Movies, Television, Video Games, Cosplay, Personal Experiences, Nerd, Geek, Anime and Pop Culture.

Our focus is on the family and fans who are young at heart. The costs we keep low so that we can pass the savings on to our customers, and we are the most affordable convention in New England at the present time.

Boston SouthCoast Comic Con & Anime Fest will include Celebrities signing autographs plus professional photo ops with the stars. But we will not bring in anyone who we don’t think will fit into our dynamic programming and keep things affordable for fans.

Artists include numerous comic book, fantasy, sci-fi, horror and cartoon creators. And we will encourage local creators who make their own comics, books, films, and other entertainments. Fan art will be limited, as we feel that creativity is more.

Live entertainment is featured all day with Music, Panels, Workshops, and Entertainers on the main stage. Free play to play video gaming on vintage and modern systems from GameUnderground, table top gaming, and anything else we can bring to the convention that will entertain fans and families alike.
