CAKE 2016 is approaching fast, and we wanted to share a few of the things to watch out for during CAKE weekend:
Don’t forget about CAKE’s Minicomics Incentive Punchcard! Every program given out at the event this year will have a punchcard included, and for each minicomic you purchase from one of our exhibitors, you’ll be eligible for prizes. This year’s prizes include vinyl stickers featuring poster art from each year of CAKE, buttons, and a large-scale poster by Anya Davidson!
Our grand-prize is an entry into a daily raffle for weekend tickets for the Pitchfork Music Festival! The raffle will be drawn at the end of the day both days of CAKE, and tickets will be mailed to the raffle winners after the CAKE weekend.
We will also have enamel pins for sale during the weekend, featuring Edie Fake’s CAKE logo! These will be available for $5 each at the CAKE info table, along with t-shirts and tote bags featuring Krystal DiFronzo’s CAKE 2016 art!
The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) is a weekend-long celebration of independent comics, inspired by Chicago’s rich legacy as home to many of underground and alternative comics’ most talented artists–past, present, and future. Featuring comics for sale, workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions, and more, CAKE is dedicated to fostering community and dialogue among independent artists, small presses, publishers, and readers. The fifth annual CAKE will take place Saturday, June 11, and Sunday, June 12, 2016, at the Center on Halsted, 3656 North Halsted Avenue in Chicago.
