The MoCCA Arts Festival is a 2-day multimedia event, Manhattan’s largest independent comics, cartoon and animation festival, drawing over 7,000 attendees each year. With 400 exhibiting artists displaying their work, award-winning honorees speaking about their careers and artistic processes and other featured artists conducting workshops, lectures and film screenings, our Festival mission accelerates the advancement of the Society’s broader mission to serve as Manhattan’s singular cultural institution promoting all genres of illustration through exhibitions, programs and art education.
The MoCCA Arts Festival will take place April 1 – 2nd from 11:00AM – 6:00PM at the luxurious and modern Metropolitan West located on West 46th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues.

Overlooking the Hudson River, this contemporary hotel is found in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen and features spectacular views of the city skyline.
