DCAF Coming!

August 1st, 2012
DCAF_ShirtIf all goes according to plan, this August 19th will see the launch of DCAF—the first (hopefully) annual Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival. The idea for this event is similar to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) and the Maine Comic Arts Festival (MeCAF), in that it will be something of a cross between a smaller-sized comic convention and a crafters’ market; a one-day event featuring a wide array of (mostly local) comic creators, zine-makers, print-makers, and other local artists selling their own creations, essentially just comics & art. The location is the Alderney Landing Cultural Centre on the Dartmouth side of the harbour, home to the Alderney Farmers Market, the Craig Gallery, and the Alderney Theatre. It’s basically where the ferry from Halifax drops everyone off every half hour or so, and it’s connected to the Alderney Gate Library. We’ll be promoting the heck out of this event at Strange Adventures, and via flyers, Twitter, Facebook group, and good old fashioned word of mouth. Hopefully participants will do the same via their own social media outlets! If you think you might be interested in setting up at this event, or even just volunteering your time to help make it happen, email Cal (shop@strangeadventures.com) or Dave (davekhowlett@gmail.com) to get involved. Even if you just have some ideas on how to make DCAF happen, or make it better, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks, and we hope to see all of you there! Alderney Landing, 11AM - 5PM, Sunday, August 19th, 2012 Free admission! All ages welcome! It's the first-ever Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival!
