Big Apple Conventions is throwing a Holiday Party!

The Big Apple Christmas Con on December 14th 2019 is our first convention in our new home at The New Yorker Hotel (8th Ave@34th St). We’re celebrating our move by throwing a holiday party for all our fans who have, over the past 23 years, made us the premier boutique comic and popular culture show in NYC. We belong to the NY community and our show, chock full of comic artists, celebrities, exhibitors, special events, cosplayers, and folks out for a great time, is our way of giving back.

The New Yorker Hotel is a dream venue for the Big Apple Comic Con boutique conventions. Built in 1929, this Art Deco masterpiece (now part of Wyndham) has been completely renovated to its suggestively stylized splendor. It also resembles The Daily Planet Building (which makes us feel at home indeed).

Many top exhibitors will be selling original comic artwork and some of the most sought-after collectible comic books in history, and you can fill your shopping list with goodies from all aspects of pop culture including: science fiction, fantasy, film, television, cosplay, animation, anime, manga, toys, horror, collectible card games, video games, web comics, and fantasy and graphic novels. You’ll meet dozens of artists, creators, and independent publishers, and be able to participate in celebrity panels and programming with professionals from various fields.

Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or Chill Party; this a going to be a lot of fun!
