Geek Fest

Wheaton Public Library will celebrate Free Comic Book Day with its first ever Geek Fest on Saturday, May 6 from 10 am to 2 pm on the main floor and lower level of the library. Costumes are encouraged for this all ages event.

All are invited to come celebrate their favorite fandoms with free comic books and a variety of hands-on activities. Participants can look forward to trivia, a glow stick dance party, tabletop gaming, video games, a photo booth, cosplay contest, and more. Please note that comic books are available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.

Attendees will also be able to join artist Mark Anderson for a cartooning class in Meeting Room A at 10 & 11 am. During the class, participants will get to practice their cartooning skills by drawing monsters, elves, dragons and more. Registration is required to attend this class.
