Hero Nation is a FREE, family-friendly comic convention that celebrates superheroes and diversity with the mission that everyone has a hero inside of themselves that deserves to be celebrated. Hero Nation also seeks to amplify the voices of marginalized people including people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities and women.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 9th from 1pm-6pm at the Parkridge Community Center.

Hero Nation–Ypsilanti was inspired by:

  • The need for more visibility for everyday heroes and positive people 
  • The need for more diverse and intersectional safe spaces in the Ypsilanti community
  • The need for opportunities for people to experience self-empowerment
  • The chance to give back to the community through partnerships with local non-profits and charities

This event will feature a number of exciting things including:

  • Free arcade games
  • Free console gaming
  • Free workshops
  • Free film screening
  • Free Guest performances
  • Artists Exhibitions
  • And more

Hero Nation will also:

  • Give free comics to kids, to promote youth literacy
  • Offer free tables to youth artist (but we have limited availability)
