Whimsical festival to bring magic to Toowoomba – Australia News


THE Eclectic Emporium and Toowoomba Regional Libraries are coming together to bring a wondrous festival to town.

TooCon: Pop Culture Festival will be held on Saturday, September 2 from 10am to 4pm at The Civic Square.

TooCon is a family-friendly celebration of cosplay, comics, manga, movies and all things pop culture.

The festival celebrates the region’s local talent, showcases unique geeky goodies and entertainment at the Eclectic Emporium’s Once upon a Time Markets.

Market owner Anita Baills said whether you were big or small everyone loved a good story.

“Whether it be comic books, fantasy, fables or any other book, we all love to escape into different worlds through the power of a good story,” she said.

“We believe each of our stallholders has their own special story to tell through their products and we will have on display a wide array of all things weird, wonderful and geeky.”

Stallholders from across the region and other parts of south-east Queensland will be offering their goodies.

Many of the stallholders are regulars at major pop-culture conventions across the state such as Nature’s Forge and Fractured Lace.

There will be wands, bohemian crystal crowns, wearable dragon horns, geek jewellery, storm trooper cookie cutters and even cosplay outfits for your pampered pooch.

The festival will give the community a chance to meet well known celebrities and artists working in the comic industry, television and the cosplay circuit.

It is a free event and attendees are encouraged to dress up.
