Comic Gong set for 2022


Only a few days to go before Wollongong’s original pop-culture festival - Comic Gong - makes its triumphant return on Saturday 14 May.

Presented by Wollongong City Libraries and Wollongong Council, Comic Gong is held across five locations: Wollongong Library, Wollongong Town Hall, Arts Precinct, Arts Gallery and the Crown Street Mall.

The free event offers something for everyone to enjoy including LEGO robots, the Illawarra Mercury Cosplay Competitions, kids’ activities, face painting, artist and trade stalls, Live Action Role Play (LARP) demonstrations, the Batmobile, arcade games and pinball machines, and much, much more!

“Comic Gong is such a fun community event that brings a range of different people together with eclectic tastes and interests to celebrate everything pop-culture, comics, art and cosplay,” Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said.
