MeCAF (Maine Comics Arts Festival)

May 18, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Portland Company Complex, 58 Fore St, Portland, ME

Since 2009, MeCAF has been Portland’s annual showcase for comic arts bringing creators to the public. Unlike a typical comic convention, there are no dealers and stores set up, just writers, artists and publishers.


We will have over 100 comic writers and artists on hand for this event. There will be everyone from mini comics publishers to seasoned professionals. There will be comic book writers and artists, gag cartoonists, newspaper cartoonists, web comics creators and more. The guests will have their own work available for sale. Some people will be doing sketches and selling original artwork. Others will have t-shirts, buttons and posters. All of them have one thing in common… a love of comics.


Admission is only $5.00. Children 12 and under get in free.

Trees & Hills is exhibiting at MeCAF, as are T&H-area creators Adam Whittier, Amanda Boucher, Anne Thalheimer, Center for Cartoon Studies, Christopher Holt, Colin Tedford, Eleri Harris, James Sturm, Jon Chad, Liz Plourde, Marek Bennett, Matt Aucoin, Rachel Lindsay, Randall Drew, Randy Michaels, Sophie Goldstein, Tom Pappalardo, and possibly a few others unknown to us who didn’t mention their location in their MeCAF bio. People from other places will be there, too, many of them Mainers and Boston Comics Roundtablers.
