FerryCon is our all day, yearly Comic Con-style flagship event for all ages that takes place one Saturday every Spring. 2019 saw the inaugural FerryCon, which brought over 400 participants to our library for fun-filled events including artists alley, classes, panels, and contests that revolved around comic books, graphic novels, super heroes, and more!!!

Due to the COVID pandemic, we were forced to cancel the April 2020 show, but returned in 2021 for a successful *virtual FerryCon (you can watch all that footage HERE, with corresponding clickable timestamp links for each event in the video description). 

We since returned back in person in 2022 with a solid turnout and look forward to building it bigger and better each year!
