Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) is a FREE, city-wide, four-day arts festival hosted every year by people and places with a passion for cartoon arts. CXC connects the global family of cartoon storytellers, comic makers, and animators with the people who love and are inspired by their art at a variety of venues throughout Columbus. Events include films, talks, book signings, panels, and workshops, and the Comics Expo and Marketplace.
In 2019, expect a series of revitalized programming efforts: more LGBTQ-focused panels to better reflect the breadth of our community; more hands-on activities for kids in our All-Ages programming each Expo day; better focused professional development presentations at the show and throughout the year; our dear friends at SOL-CON with their fifth straight set of uniquely targeted community-building exercises, and a focus on our champions of free speech and political expression from the AAEC!
CXC brings you entire worlds of comics and cartoon-making!
