Benefitting OpenDoors Asheville
A convention unlike Any Other
Calling all science nerds, comic fans, cosplay enthusiasts, and those curious about our scene, the inaugural Asheville Beer City Comic Con will exceed your expectations and delight all your senses. This dynamic event will be marvelous thanks to exciting comic book and pop culture vendors, brave local artists, magnificently big brained speakers, and yummylicious beer from Western North Carolina’s best craft breweries. We’re packing into one weekend a super amount of musts, including:
- Intellectual seminars with renowned brainiacs from comic, academic, and civic circles discussing the Con community’s role in keeping our planet safe from harm!
- Panel discussions about the psychology of comic book characters and their influence on modern culture!
- Pop-up dance and costume events with DJs for all you freaks and geeks!
- Fancy philosophical conversations about the ontological themes of sci-fi, comics, and human nature!
- Shamazing artwork from locals you won’t find anywhere else!
- Speciality batch beers made only for BCCC—slurp!
Come to Asheville. Let’s get WEIRDER and WISER! We’ll have the best of the comic con community in a city that is welcoming and celebrates its own distinct uniqueness. This con will only be one once. (Imagine how great the t-shirts will look wrapped in polyethylene one day!)
