Livingston Parish’s biggest celebration of comic books, movies, television, video games, and all things pop culture is coming back! 

The Livingston Parish Library (LPL) will host the 9th Annual Comic Con on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024. 

People of all ages are invited to celebrate their favorite fandom at this free event, which is open to the public.  

Comic Con will run from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Denham Springs-Walker Branch. All other branches of the Livingston Parish Library system will be closed the day of the event. 

Inspired by the mega-event that takes place annually in San Diego, LPL’s Comic Con invites attendees to participate in games and activities, interact with local authors, illustrators and graphic novelists, and cosplay as their favorite characters.  

Held at the Livingston Parish Library’s biggest, most innovative branch, visitors can also utilize the Library’s Idea Lab, which contains virtual reality and 3D printing capabilities. 

“Comic Con has grown into one of our most popular events of the year,” said Livingston Parish Library Director Michelle Parrish. “Our team, led by the Library’s Head of Community Engagement Kyla Robertson, works tirelessly for months to bring as many vendors, featured guests, performers, games, and activities together as possible.  

“But what really makes Comic Con special is the community’s enthusiasm for the event, which is why this has grown into one of the Library’s biggest days of the year. If you haven’t been to Comic Con before, we hope you’ll consider coming this year. There’s something for everyone!”   

More details about the 9th Annual Comic Con will be announced in the coming weeks on the Library’s website and social media feeds. For up-to-date information, visit
