Tampere Kuplii comics festival

Tampere Kuplii is a feel-good comics festival for everybody interested in comics and graphic novels.

The dates for 2018 are from Wednesday 21.3 to Sunday 25.3., with the majority of programming taking place over the weekend. The weekend programming is held in Tampere Hall, located close to the town center, just a short walk from the long distance bus and railway stations.

The festival is free of charge for the attendees. Information on programmes in English will be updated on this page at the beginning of the year 2018.

The weekend programming consists of lectures, panels, signatures, competitions and various free-form activities. While most of the programming will be in Finnish, there will also be items to enjoy even if you don't speak Finnish, for example our cosplay competition and several comics-related exhibitions. Comic vendors will be selling comic books also in English (and a lot other interesting stuff, too!) during the weekend. Our staff as well as our many vendors will also be happy to assist you in English.
