On the Way to MCAF


On the Way to MCAF

The Festival is on the Move!

After a decade of welcoming aficionados of the comic arts in the heart of La Fontaine Park, MCAF is picking up stakes and moving to Saint Denis Street!

This year, MCAF is teaming up with the Saint Denis Street Société de développement commercial (SDC) to reimagine the Festival. A 1.5 kilometer section of Saint Denis Street will be closed to traffic and be transformed into a veritable street fair from May 27 to 29, hosting dozens of tents, over a hundred exhibitors, and more than 200 artists.

“This change of location ensures greater visibility and increased foot traffic while maintaining the friendly aspect so appreciated by our public and the comic arts community”, indicated our general manager Johanne Desrochers, at the unveiling of this new partnership.

The Festival is a team effort, it couldn’t happen without dedicated organizers, supportive creators, and perhaps most importantly of all, a team of happy and enthusiastic volunteers.

So, you bring the enthusiasm—we’ll keep you happy!

Join our team to make this event a success! Come and have a front row seat to a festival that is growing in size, and that brings together professionals and comic book enthusiasts from here and elsewhere.

Register now, we look forward to working with you!

Crowdfunding Campaign: Rencontres

Just over two years ago, the MCAF team had the audacity to launch a new publishing house, Presses du FBDM | MCAF Press.

Our foray into publishing continues to shine brightly, and we are now in the midst of a fundraising campaign for our THIRD annual collection, Rencontres, which once again features a whos-who of cartoonists who have participated in our event over the years.

Come and support them by visiting our project page on the Quebec crowdfunding platform La Ruche, and get your hands on more than 100 pages of original comics, along with some fantastic extras (including some original illustrations from some of the Rencontres stories!)
