Coeur d’Con is a comic convention, organized by the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, which celebrates books, movies, games, manga, comics, and all of the many avenues of geek culture. Entrance to the convention is free with local businesses, artists, and experts exhibiting and selling their goods in the park, offering a plethora of unique wares and perspectives on pop culture.
This event is organized, and hosted, by the the staff (and volunteers) of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. Staff and volunteers offer a variety of themed crafts, games and other activities, with events for every age group throughout the day. All library-led crafts and activities will be free for participants.
But what would a comic con be without costumes? Fans are encouraged to dress to impress for Coeur d’Con, visit the website again in the next few months to learn the details of this year’s Cosplay contest. As this will be a family-friendly event, participants are encouraged to keep costumes tasteful and appropriate for the audience.

Winners will be selected by popular vote from each age category: pre-school (0-6), kids (7-12), teens (13-17), and adults (18+), and will be contacted after the convention.
