Cornwall Ontario – It’s time to get your CAPE on!


The Cornwall & Area Pop Event – or CAPE for short – returns on Saturday, April 22nd and Sunday, April 23rd with a full roster of celebrity guests, artists, cosplayers, exhibitors, panels and much more.

“CAPE 2023 is shaping up to be another great family fun event. There will be a full floor of wonderful geeky and nerdy merchandise from your favourite returning exhibitors and more from many new vendors,” said Randy Sauve, the organizer of CAPE together with his wife Carol.

The event is a popular one that attracts thousands of fans of popular culture (movies, TV, comics, video games etc) from across Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. Fans come to browse the wares of dozens of exhibitors offering everything from comics to collectibles, take photos with cosplayers – people dressed as colour characters, and meet special guests.

“There will be a full section featuring our very talented local cosplayers and of course, we have special guests from movies and television that are sure to be a hit.”

Show Hours

The two-day comic and pop culture convention takes place at the Benson Centre. CAPE will run from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, April 22nd and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, April 23rd.
