NCS Fest Artists Alley Reservations Reminder


Yeah it’s the busy season but don’t forget to reserve your table for the NCS Fest.

The Deadline is January 31, 2019 and we hope to remind you again after New Years Day.


Coming to Huntington Beach, California, May 17-19, NCS Fest is shaping up to be the biggest FREE comic arts festival in North America. Hundreds of superstar comics creators are coming in from all over the world and among the guests already confirmed are:

DANIEL CLOWES (“Ghost World”)
GILBERT & JAIME HERNANDEZ (“Love and Rockets”)
SEAN PHILLIPS & ED BRUBAKER (“Criminal” “Fade Out”)
ANN TELNAES (Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist)
and many more!


There will be major art exhibitions, seminars, cartooning classes and much, much more! NCS Fest’s Artists Alley will have its own unique twist – we’ll be taking our artists outdoors onto Main Street, Huntington Beach for the weekend! Just steps from the iconic pier, Main Street will be closed to traffic as the city celebrates all things comics for the first time. We’ll provide each artist with a secure 10×10′ Gazebo, table, chairs and power … all you need to bring is your talent and art!

Artists Alley and the Marketplace will be open all day Saturday and Sunday and we anticipate that many, many thousands of people will visit! It’s a great way to promote your work and products, meet and greet the public and sell your wares! Participating artists will have access to a nearby hospitality suite and will be invited to the NCSFest Farewell Party on Sunday night.

Artists Alley fees are $200 per table for non-NCS members and $100 for NCS members for the entire weekend. APPLY ONLINE AT http://NCSFEST.COM/ or email for more details.

Please note that we need your reservation by Thursday, January 31, 2019. We will confirm your table allocation in February 2019.

The City is closing down three blocks of Main Street and also Fifth Street … there will be events at the Library and Arts Center … events on and at the pier … possibly a movie screening in Pacific City … and dozens of seminars and events at The Hyatt Regency.
