Tampere Kuplii comics festival

Tampere Kuplii is a feel-good comics festival for everybody interested in comics and graphic novels. The festival is free of charge for visitors, and everyone is welcome.

The dates for 2024 are from Wednesday March 20th to Sunday March 24th, 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. Tampere Hall is open from 10 to 18 (10 AM to 6 PM) on Saturday, and from 11 to 17 (11 AM to 5 PM) on Sunday.

Programme and vendors

The weekend programming consists of lectures, panels, signatures, competitions and various free-form activities. 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.

Cash, cloaks and comestibles

Cash machines can be found near the Tampere Hall event site. Most dealers will accept debit and credit cards and contactless payment is generally preferred. Some smaller vendors may also use Mobilepay.

Tampere Hall is located in the immediate vicinity of the city center, so there is only a short walk to the nearest grocery stores, restaurants and hotels.

Tampere Hall has a cloakroom, that costs 3 € for adults, and under 12-year olds go free of charge. The fee can be paid by cash or card.

Who we are - join us!

The Tampere Kuplii comics festival is organized by Tampere Kuplii ry, a registered non-profit organization. We're a rather colorful group of people who love comics and we call ourselves the feel-good comics bureaucrats. Tampere Kuplii ry organizes various comics related happenings all around the year throughout the Tampere region. Besides our comics festival, we also organize the yearly Sarjakuva-Finlandia comics competition. Everything we do is based on volunteer work.

Do you want to be a part of Tampere Kuplii? If you want to join our work team during the festival, or you have ideas for programmes (or want to organise one!), or you just want to be a part of the team creating the festival, please contact us!
