Ai-Kon’s Artist Faire is where attendees can find original artwork and crafts from their favourite anime, manga or game series! Our Artist Faire is located in our Marketplace alongside vendors and encompasses a wide range of talented artists, from media to textiles to crafts. Breathtaking posters and prints, adorable charms and trinkets, or even handmade apparel and plushies – we’ve got it all. Con-goers can even commission their favourite artist for a personalized work of art!
