Convention coming to the Cross Insurance Center May 26-28

BANGOR – The Bangor Comic & Toy Convention is here once again.

Convention mastermind Chris MacMillan loves putting on the yearly event. When asked how it feels to put on the event in his home state, MacMillan said “It's just love. A lot of love. I can't think of any other way to say it.”

“A lot of folks there are tired of driving to Boston, the expense is huge. I've learned that if you can give them things to do, and a good selection of vendors/artists, that they will support them,” said MacMillan. “I know that cons are expensive, but I want them to feel that if they spend $25 for a day, they are smothered with options for 10-plus hours.”

MacMillan said that the Bangor Comic and Toy can was an idea spawned from his buddy’s con in Lexington, Kentucky.

“Bangor has slowly awakened over the past 15 years in the ‘fun things to do’ area,” he said. “I only wanted this idea to take root In Bangor.”

The Bangor Comic & Toy Con is days away from making its third appearance at the Cross Insurance Center. From Friday May 26th to Sunday May 28th, The Comic and Toy Con will bring three days of gaming, cosplay, music, special guests and photo opportunities to Bangor. The con will also feature local artists and vendors.

This year the con will open up rooms for workshops so local artists, writers, and vendors can demonstrate their passions.

“People love to sit through things and learn about new things, or they want to talk about a movie, a style of art. We wanted to take this awesome cast of cool people who are behind their tables for three days and let them break what they do or like down with others,” said MacMillan.

This year’s guest list is an impressive one.

Take Jim Cummings for instance. The actor has voiced a number of DreamWorks and Disney characters including Scar from the Lion King.

“Chances are you or your kids know his work, his panels are epic and I think kids are going to get a kick out of him,” said MacMillan.

Other guests include Johnny Young Bosch, who provides English voices for many English anime productions; Ani-Mia, a cosplayer with Southern Maine roots; and Kel Mitchell from the 1997 film “Good Burger.”

The weekend festivities also include a number of gaming and cosplay tournaments.

“Our gaming and cosplay are perfect for beginners, the staff in charge of this part of the event are great at getting newbies in and situated,” said MacMillan. Competitive and open game play will be offered. Additionally, MacMillan said that Ben Santos of Cosplay Convention Center will be running a Heroclix tournament along with several Cosplay tournaments.

In addition, the Maine Association of Cosplay Enthusiasts will be hosting a Cosplay Death Match and the Dating game. MacMillan said that anyone interested in any of the tournaments should sign up sooner rather than later; any questions can be posted on their Facebook page.

The Bangor Toy & Comic Con is a labor of love for MacMillan.

“It's endless prep and negotiating and lining everything up,” he said. “It's 3 a.m. because that's when they want to talk. It's during holidays, birthdays and even during my stepfather’s death. It's missing last days of school, it's always watching what others are doing, coast to coast. Even if you're starving, exhausted - or trying to put a worm on your five-year-old’s hook.”

Regardless, MacMillan looks forward the Bangor Toy & Comic Con every year.

“I'm just the promoter, but I get to see thousands of faces light up and relax, have fun.”

The 2017 Bangor Toy & Comic Con kicks off on the night of May 26 with Friday Night Live, featuring some of Maine’s best young and local bands. The activities continue through the weekend at the Cross Insurance Center.

A full schedule can be found online at; updates on the event can be found on the Bangor Comic & Toy Con Facebook page. Tickets for the event are $55 for all three days or $40 for Saturday and Sunday. Kids 12 and under get in free.
