What is LadiesCon?
LadiesCon is a FREE one-day celebration of women of all kinds and their work in comic books, science fiction, fantasy, cosplay, and many other realms of pop culture. LadiesCon was created as a welcoming event for everyone that would showcase creators in a variety of fields with a particular focus on creators who identify as women, non-binary, LGBTQ, and people of color, plus local artists.
LadiesCon 2019 will be held at the Somerville Armory on September 21 from 11am to 5pm.
History of LadiesCon
The first LadiesCon was held in 2016 at a community office space in Davis Square with panels held at Comicazi. In 2017, we moved to the Armory and the convention has been held there every year since. LadiesCon 2019 will be our fourth convention.
The Ladies of Comicazi
The Ladies of Comicazi began as a blog in 2013 with four women who wanted to share their love of comics and pop culture with their community. Since then, the site and the group have expanded into an inclusive community offering weekly posts on our website, monthly events at Comicazi, and our annual LadiesCon.
