When we cancelled the festival in March 2020, we told creators and publishers that applications for our 2021 festival would open on August 1st, 2020. As conditions and public health advisories surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, we can’t currently confirm festival dates for 2021. Therefore, we will not be able to open applications as scheduled.
We’re hopeful that we will be able to announce festival dates soon, but we need more time to see how current health policies play out.
There will be a festival of some kind, but we don’t know what that looks like yet. We’ll provide an update in November 2020.

TORONTO, CANADA: TCAF proudly unveils its Kids Author Featured Guests for 2020! These authors, illustrators, writers, and cartoonists represent some of the strongest work in all of comics, and many of the year’s best works will debut at TCAF 2020! TCAF will also hold a special offsite one-day event, TCAF KIDS DAY, which will put the spotlight squarely on books for young readers, in a venue welcoming kids and families!
“Comics for young people are some of the most exciting areas of comics publishing,” said TCAF Kids Programming Coordinator Andrew Woodrow-Butcher. “TCAF has long had a commitment to supporting all audiences when it comes to programming our guests, but this year we’re pleased to have one of the most robust and exciting lists of Featured Guests ever!”
