Austin’s first Latino comics and culture convention is here! This convention features up-and-coming Mexican American and Latino comic book artists and creators showcasing their work, as well as Latino 'zine artists, filmmakers and cosplay enthusiasts.
There will be workshops, guest speakers and panel discussions, as well as Latino-themed superhero movie screenings all day. There will be culturally-relevant nerd music on hand as well as raspas and other great food. We welcome everyone to dress up in their favorite cosplay and join in the fun!
MexAmeriCon 2018 is organized by a group of dedicated volunteers who grew up reading comics books and believe in the value Latinos add to the United States with their beautiful art and culture. Our focus at MexAmeriCon 2018 is to create a positive and inclusive environment for both artists and attendees to unite and share.
This event will be held in collaboration with the City of Austin at the wonderful Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center (esbmacc.org) located on Town Lake near Rainey street. The event will be held on Saturday September 1, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. All are welcome at this free event which is open to the public and appropriate for all ages.
