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 2023 are from Wednesday March 22nd to Sunday March 26th, 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 on Saturday, and from 11 to 17 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 at and near the Tampere Hall event site. Most dealers will accept debit and credit cards and contactless payment is generally preferred.

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.
