Heroes Descend on the Nation’s Capital as OZCC Ushers in Their First Ever Canberra-Based Event


It’s a known fact that Canberra is a city known for its many charms and by putting politics aside, we can agree that it’s hosted some of Australia’s greatest heroes throughout the years. But by serving as the nation’s greatest superpower, it’s felt like there’s always been something missing... until now.


Oz Comic-Con is thrilled to usher in their first ever event in Canberra, taking over the Exhibition Park from August 27th - 28th with their Homegrown format. Whilst hosting the ultimate showcase of everything pop culture, attendees will be treated to a weekend featuring celebrity guests, state-based content including artists and cosplayers, and a show floor absolutely bursting with exciting opportunities.


Continuing their partnership with the Australian Esports League (AEL) for their gaming zone, Oz Comic-Con Homegrown is also joining forces with Geek Markets for a crossover more ambitious than Endgame.


These will be joining the staple pillars of Cosplay Central,Artist Alley,Tabletop Gaming, and so much more.
