2019 Fort Collins Comic Con
Vendor Information

Thank you for being a part of Fort Collins Comic Con! To help you have a great experience at the event, we’ve put together an overview of important vendor information.

Vendor setup is Friday from 3-9PM at the Northside Aztlan Community Center located at 112 E Willow Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524. Please note that due to construction, Willow Street is ONE-WAY Eastbound from College to Laurel.

We highly recommend parking at one of the parking garages or the Odell Dirt Lot on Saturday and Sunday to allow attendees as many close parking options as possible. We have a number of parking vouchers for the local garages to help you offset the cost of doing so and these will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
