Please stay tuned for updates!


F.A.Q.

How much does this event cost?

It's free! There will be no charge to attend panels, workshops, film screenings, presentations, etc. 

Where do I park?

We are very fortunate to have a large parking lot at the East Baton Rouge Parish Library at Goodwood. Bring a friend and park in one of our designated high occupancy spaces! Since this year's event is virtual, you are welcome to visit any of our branches to use Wi-Fi. You can watch/stream it on your phone, tablet, or laptop as long as it is connected to the internet. 

Are children welcome?

Children are welcome to view this event; however, adults should use their discretion when deciding whether or not this event is appropriate for the children in their care. 

It's possible to use this event to spark meaningful conversations with your child or to develop a shared interest. That said, some panels and presentations may delve into mature topics and some vendors may have materials that some adults will not find suitable for the children in their care. We ask you to exercise your judgment on your child's maturity level as well as your own comfort level with the content. We encourage you to watch the live streamed panels along with your child if there are any hesitations. As the event draws nearer, we will identify vendors, comic book titles, and programs that are more "kid-friendly" on this InfoGuide and in the event program. Artists will be instructed not to prominently display any material that is not family-friendly. If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to email us at midcitymicrocon@gmail.com or call 225-231-3710. 

Will there be food?

This year's event will be virtual, so you are welcome to bring along any of your snacks while you enjoy the show from the comfort of your space!

How do I register for the cosplay competition?

The 2020 cosplay competition will be a photo submission competition, so no registration is required. More info will be added soon.

How do I sign up for a workshop?

All workshops will be streamed the day of the event!

Where can I learn more about the guests?

We'll be adding brief bios for each of our guests soon, as well as linking to their websites. Check out the Creator's tab for more information! Please be advised that the library is not affiliated with our guests' websites in any capacity and is not responsible for their content.
