ToonFest will be celebrating its 16th year! Yippee! From our humble beginnings with a cartoonist drawing in the park as a few curious locals walked by...

til today where we attract visitors from all over the world. Annually, we host speakers from the cartooning world A-list. Not only does the public have the opportunity to participate in a full day of activities in E.P. Ripley Park, but also to enjoy the Cartoonist Symposiums at the historic Uptown Theatre and the International Cartoon show at the Masonic Temple. The day kicks off with a parade that features bands, floats, Princesses, Pirates, Grand Marshalls, and more. It continues with live entertainment, craft booths, great food, and fun for the whole family. ToonFest is truly a wonderful celebration that should not be missed.

See you at ToonFest 2014...it's an original...we like it that way.
