We hope you’re as excited for Free Comic Book Day as we are! Along with the free comics and great artists sketching we’re having a great sale and The CW and The Mystery Machine will be here on site for the festivities!

We’ve put together this handy map to help with parking. Free lots will be located between Boy Scouts of America and St Martin’s Episcopal Church on 7th street, across from Children’s Home of North Carolina also on 7th St., and also beside the 2 story brick building next to Pecan Point (DO NOT PARK AT PECAN POINT). These lots will all be marked with HEROES PARKING signs. All of these lots are in walking distance of the store if you’d like to get out and experience our wonderful neighborhood. We’ll also be running shuttles to these lots regularly if you’d like a ride to the store.

As always, there is lots of parking on the residential streets in our neighborhood. Check for spots on Pecan, 8th, 9th, Clement, Clarice, Ridgeway, Bay, Lamar, and the Rose Garden at Independance Park. Use the Trolley Walk if you park on Greenway and 5th Street.  They are all very close, please just be mindful of residents driveways. 

We hope to see you on Saturday, May 5th!

COSTUMES / WEAPONS CHECK:
While we will not be holding a Costume Contest at our 2018 show, the Charlotte Mini-Con encourages attendees who wish to attend in costume to come out and have fun! Please be advised that there will be a weapons check at the door and that all costume props must be either wooden or plastic to comply with the Grady Cole Center weapons policy. All replica weapons will need to be inspected and approved as a non-functional prop at the door before they will be allowed inside the Grady Cole Center. No metal weaponry of any kind will be allowed inside the Grady Cole Center. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing all the great costumes this weekend!

(Note: We ask that you please be respectful to the artists and exhibitors at Charlotte Mini-Con when taking photos with our costumed attendees. Please try not to block anyone’s set-up when taking photos, and if you would like to stage a group photo, please try to do so outside of high-traffic areas. We want everyone to have a great time at our show, and appreciate your help!)
