What to expect

After being previously hosted in both Riyadh and Jeddah, this edition of the event will come together at the Jeddah Convention Center.

The event offers an opportunity for fanatics to geek out about all things comic books, manga, anime, film, television, science fiction, and video games, plus you get to go home with a bunch of collectibles to remember the days by too. We’re also expecting to see anime performers, Femm, perform one last time before disbanding.

The festival will also include an e-sports area, a fan art competition, an escape room, a selfie museum, and a Japan experience.

Tickets for the event have already been released and you can get yours here for SAR75.


Joining us for the event will be none other than CW’s famous DC Comics superhero, The Arrow’s actor Stephen Amell, author Rachel Litfin, Kaiju comic artist Hiroshi Kanatani, and the man behind iconic comics like ‘Web of Spider-Man,’ ‘Antivenom,’ ‘Zatanna,’ ‘Warlord,’ ‘Wonder Woman,’ comic book illustrator Chad Hardin. SakuraFlor will also be a part of the event as a judge for the cosplay competiton too.


There will also be cool competitions happening at Jeddah Comic Con 2023. If you’re keen on cosplay, youo’ll be happy to know there’s a competition happening just for that, with a massive prize pool at stake too. The winner of the massive competition walks away with SAR15,000.
