Comic Gong 2022

Comic Gong

After a smaller-scale Comic Gong in 2021 (The Pandemic Arc), we are thrilled to announce that Comic Gong will be roaring back on Saturday, 14 May, 2022! From 10am to 4pm, across Wollongong Town Hall, the Art Gallery, the Arts Precinct and Wollongong Library.

The main exhibition space will once again be hosted in the Town Hall. Expressions of interest for exhibitor applications are now closed.

2022 Comic Gong Exhibitor Applications

Exhibitor Spaces are more limited than ever this year, so please make sure you get your applications in by the closing date. Applications received after midnight on 23 January will be placed on the reserve list, no exceptions.

Successful & unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email once the application period is closed. Exhibitor space booking fees are $85 per table, or $110 per table with backing boards; successful applicants must pay this fee by 28 February 2022 or forfeit their booking.

If you require power, you must book an Exhibitor Space with backing boards. These spaces with backing boards are placed around the walls of the venue to reduce the likelihood of trip hazards.

The story so far...

Comic Gong started back in 2013 at Corrimal District Library and Community Centre. In 2014 it moved to Wollongong's city centre, and has kept growing like Giganta ever since. These days, it attracts more than 10,000 people each year (that we know of - it's hard to count the ones wearing invisibility cloaks).
