We brought the AVCon artist market to Fringe! The market featured the best in local anime, video game art, cosplay, and other homemade goods!

Our pop-up market was the first Team AVCon event for 2022 since 2019. We were excited to welcome over 500 attendees over the afternoon and showcase 20 amazing creators from around Australia.

This artist market was complemented by a tabletop game showcase, come-and-play, and a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament. We saw over 20 competitors battle it out, with the finals played on the big screen at Palace Nova.
