Sorry, we haven't locked in any Comic Gong events just yet. Check back soon for updates. See our Events Calendar for details of other activities.

The story so far...

Comic Gong started back in 2013 at Corrimal District Library and Community Centre. In 2014 it moved to Wollongong's city centre, and has kept growing like Giganta ever since.

Over the years we’ve hosted a heap of Comic Gong events, from hands-on cosplay workshops and visiting artist talks, to our major Comic Gong Festivals attracting over 10,000 visitors to the Wollongong Arts Precinct (that we know of - it's hard to count the ones wearing invisibility cloaks).
