National Cartoonists Society Festival

The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is thrilled to be a part of the inaugural NCSFest, a celebration of comics and cartoon art from all over the world hosted by The National Cartoonists Society! Based on the comic art festivals that are hugely popular in Europe, the festival will be held over the weekend of May 17-19, 2019, in the city of Huntington Beach, California.

Hundreds of the world’s most celebrated creators are expected to attend the three-day event, participating in seminars, exhibitions, workshops, panel discussions and signing sessions, the vast majority of which will be free to the public. Downtown Huntington Beach will be the setting, with all events staged beachside, on the iconic pier, at the city’s Arts Center and library and in local hotels and businesses, all within easy walking distance.

Stop by the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity Family Zone at 5th & PCH on May 18th or 19th to participate in some creative, ACME-inspired endeavors of your own! With activities including chalk mandala drawing with the Low Tide Aliens, step-by-step lessons on drawing Looney Tunes characters, & adding your unique character to the Chuck Truck, it’s sure to be a blast for the whole family.
