International Comics Festival Boomfest was born in 2007 in Saint-Petersburg. Since then it has grown up into a bright international event in the world of comics art. Annually in September the festival covers the main city stages. Comics and illustration exhibitions, performances, film screening, competetitions and master-classes for young authors, meetings with artists and professionals and of course the book-fair — all of these could be found within every Boomfest.
In 2015 the Boomfest exhibition program takes place from 17th September to 11th October and educational program from 25th to 27th September.
