There’s A Comic Arts Festival Coming To Dublin

Sarah Finnan

The Dublin Comic Arts Festival (DCAF) is a series of small press comic book events across the capital.

Created to showcase the best of local talent and celebrate the spectrum of Irish sequential art. The small press comic scene has been growing steadily under the radar in Ireland over the years.

Taking place October 12 in The Chocolate Factory on King’s Inn Street, visitors will get the chance to meet local creators and check out some of their work. An old Williams & Woods Chocolate factory, the building houses a creative community of business along with a gallery and a hostel.

There will be coffee and food from Blas Café on sale on the day too, in case you need a little something to keep you going.

Among the exhibitors will be Sarah Cunningham, a Dublin illustrator with a passion for animals, the environment, and spreading positivity as well as Two Pugs Publishing’s Ray Roche who produces comics from the bestselling children’s bedtime story Do You Fart, Mr. Monkey?.

Entry is free so make sure to drop by and have a nosey around, you might just find a print or two for your gaff.
