Attending TCAF

Want to get to TCAF? Here’s everything you need to know!


All TCAF events are free to attend and do not require tickets or charges unless otherwise specified. General exceptions to this rule have been related musical events and our Friday night launch, which have required tickets and/or admission charges. We want to break down the barriers between comics and the general public, and ensure any money that our attendees spend goes into the pockets of the hardworking authors, artists, and publishers exhibiting at TCAF. If you don’t see a prominently-listed price on a TCAF event, there isn’t one.


While TCAF is a multi-venue event, the main Festival Venue is Toronto Reference Library.
