ComicFest crammed with geekdom

DISCLAIMER: this post is older than one year and may not be up to date.

Whatever your fandom, geek out with fellow nerds at Nashua Library ComicFest on Saturday, June 23, from 12 noon to 7 p.m.

ComicFest launches the library’s kid, teen, and adult summer reading programs, which let you log how long you read and earn prizes and raffle tickets.

This is the library’s third ComicFest. Nearly 500 people came through the doors for last year’s event.

What can you do at ComicFest? 

ComicFest is loaded with events for all ages. If cosplay is your thing, dress up and compete for prizes in the Cosplay Contest and the Cosplay Dating Game. If you’re into gaming, battle your friends in the Super Smash Bros. contest, build your own world with Minecraft, chill out with board games, or show off what you know with Trivia Carl.

At ComicFest you can escape the real world: Let magician Mark Pinksten dazzle you with his Harry Potter and all-fandom shows (see video, below). Solve your way out of a Keys to Escape room, or watch Knights Hall’s armored medieval combat. Lose yourself in the creations of 30 Artists Alley vendors.


Upstairs, kids can make superhero masks and cuffs, build new worlds with green screens and Legos, and march in a costume parade. On the Library Plaza they can enjoy accordion music, the Trash Talk percussion ensemble, Irish step dancing, and other entertainment.

Food, too

Food trucks, including Ranger’s Barbecue, Pomaire Boston Chilean, and Hazy Ice Cream will be on the Library Plaza around lunchtime. Later in the afternoon you can grab some free ramen noodles. And you’ll find plenty of restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks of the library.
