Cosplay Contest and Mini Fan Fest

Enjoy celebrating the creative nature of cosplay and all your favorite fandoms at our Cosplay Contest and Mini Fan Fest! Come dressed up and pose for photos with your favorite characters, whether you strut across the stage in our contest or just come to hang. Professional cosplayers will also be on hand to discuss cosplay and answer general cosplay questions.

Vote for your favorite fandom in The Friends of the Library Battle of the Fandoms to crown the best fandom of all! Your fandom vote enters you for our prize drawing too.
