Rose City Comic Con is Portland's local Comic Convention. One of my favorites to vend at and have done so now for several years. They haven't got TOO huge yet, and that's great because the vendor/artist/audience ratio is spot on. They value their local artists and are eager to help with any issues that anyone has. Easy to communicate with. And who doesn't love conventions in Portland? It's usually beautiful here this time of year and Rose City Comic Con continues to be a consistently fabulous convention for artists and fans alike. I will continue to do this show song long as they'll have me! Which doesn't seem to be the case, unfortunately. There was one HUGE issue that needs to be addressed; they're trying to push out all handmade items that aren't 2d prints or comics. This is understandable, but crafters and other artisans should NOT have to pay the same amount for a table as a commercial retail vendor. This is not okay. I have already paid for this upcoming year, but they really disappointed a lot of people with this kind of discrimination. If something is handmade, it's handmade, regardless of the medium. If it's related to the show, you should have it and not try to push people who have supported your show thus far out the door. Not cool. Thank goodness there are a couple of new shows popping up. We'll need them because some crafters can't afford to spend half their month's rent on a vendor's table. Just saying. We'll see how it goes!
