Bad news for comics fans! The sixth edition of Pars Comic Con - expect to take place from October 2 to 4, 2020 - at the Grande Halle de la Villette, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus health crisis.

In only 5 years, Comic Con Paris has become a reference in Europe! But bad news: because of the coronavirus health crisis, the pop culture festival will not return to the Grande Halle de la Villette this year. So, no meetings between fans and pop and geek culture professionals.

In keeping with American events, Comic Con Paris is the perfect occasion for fans to meet creators, artists and actors whilst discovering novelties and exclusive contents.

If Comic Con is the place to be to meet movie, TV and YouTube stars, you will also find goodies, information and exclusive news on exhibitors’ various stands. What we love is the atmosphere: never-ending discussions with fans and questions to professionals, meetings with associations without forgetting the cosplay contest, an event waited by fans that are not scared to put their designing superpowers to the test in the French Championship of Cosplay!
