Squatchcon 2024!

Squatchcon is a comic, cosplay, gaming, and fan culture event with a uniquely Port Angeles twist. Squatchcon features over 50 local artists and vendors, a panel series with artists and industry leaders, an all-ages cosplay contest, workshops, fan meetups, three swap events (cosplay, comics, and kids books) and multiple after-hours parties. PLUS: show your Squatchcon pass at partnering businesses over the weekend for exclusive freebies and discounts! Check our digital program for details:


Our 3rd Annual event takes place March 21st - 24th primarily at Vern Burton Community Center (308 E 4th St), with after-hours events on Thursday, March 21st at Studio Bob (118 E Front St) and Saturday, March 23rd at Field Arts & Events Hall (201 W Front St). Check out what we’re all about on Thursday during our FREE community preview (3PM - 8PM) and hurry back on Friday for our official opening day of market. Friday will also kick off our swap series with the return of our “Free 

Octopus” Cosplay & Costume Swap.


Saturday features our mainstage panel series as well as registration for the 3rd annual all-ages cosplay contest, and our free comic swap. NEW THIS YEAR: We’re kicking our Saturday night party up a notch by moving it to the brand-new Field Arts & Events Hall! On Sunday we’ll wrap the convention with a writer’s focus day including a local writer’s meetup and kids book swap. Don’t miss Judy Carroll’s in-the-woods workshop on Sasquatch communication on Sunday! 


Squatchcon is where the superfans find their tribe. Come out and help us celebrate what makes the Olympic Peninsula weird!



We also have a bit in our program that is more focused on our mission: 


Squatchcon Comic & Arts Convention started in 2022 as a one-off themed art market at One of a Kind Art Gallery in the Port Angeles Wharf. The positive community response was so overwhelming that we had no choice but to plan Squatchcon 2: Squatch-On! In our second year, we moved to Vern Burton Community Center and adopted a more traditional convention model. Squatchcon is proud to be a convention that welcomes student vendors, first-time vendors, and emerging businesses. 


As Squatchcon expanded, so did our vision for our role in Port Angeles. We saw an opportunity with our event: career inspiration and networking opportunities for teens and emerging artisans in Clallam County. With the support of local artists, individuals, and small businesses, Squatchcon offers free table space and 

mentorship for Clallam County students. 


This year, we’re welcoming our largest group of student artists: please stop by their booths and offer some encouragement! In addition to free table space, student vendors are supported in the weeks leading up to the convention with email pep talks and advice from experienced artists. As part of their vending opportunity, students are also connected with Dark Horse Comics Editor (and former Sequim High School student) Jenny Blenk for an exclusive hands-on pitch 

development workshop. 


We believe that there is a wealth of opportunity available to creative young people living in Clallam County - and that those opportunities are closer than they think. Thank you for being a part of the biggest, hairiest event on the Olympic Peninsula!

The Second Weekend Art Opening - Featuring the Art of John Hemmen

Saturday, March 9th 5-8pm with live music by Tin Sandwich and Guests Sunday, March 10th 12-3pm. Free to all ages and dog friendly.

In many cultures, fish have long been a symbol for the origin of life. Since life originated in water, fish are associated with fertility and abundance, and wealth and prosperity. Fish are associated with the water element, which signifies stability, balance, and tranquility. In Feng Sui, fish in water bring good fortune, harmony, and luck. In Christianity, fish are a symbol of Jesus and baptism. In Northwest indigenous culture, salmon represent renewal and the cycle of life. 

Says the artist: I paint fish with these symbols in mind but more so because they are beautiful in their own essence. How they flow and move in the water is magical. They are one with the water. How can I capture that? So I paint them in their element of water and as symbols out of water, and then whimsy comes forth and I paint them that way. The ways of painting fish are endless, just as the renewal of life is endless. My show demonstrates this.

Andre Feriante with Troupe de Ville

Opera - Flamenco - Blues

Saturday, March 30th

Doors open at 7 pm and show starts at 7:30pm

Advance tickets $22 or $25 at the door

Virtuoso guitarist and vocalist, Andre Feriante, whose Port Angeles shows are always highly anticipated, returns to Studio Bob with his eclectic trio Troupe de Ville! Rounding out the trio are Steve Thoreson, a powerhouse tenor vocalist, and Eric Fridrich, a Chicago bluesman. These three world class musicians present a diverse musical show that’s lighthearted with a twist of humor. There really is no other musical act to compare them to, so you’ll have to come see for yourself. You’ll be so glad you did.

Andre Feriante is a Segovia trained international performing artist who has been visiting Port Angeles annually for over twenty years. His unique brand of Flamenco Fusion original compositions and multi-instrument explorations have been enjoyed at the Fine Arts Center, the Juan de Fuca Festival, the Lost Mountain Guitar Festival and more.

Steve Thoreson is a classically trained opera singer, and pianist, with a voice that has been compared to Luciano Pavarotti. A native of North Bend, WA, Steve has performed in twenty one countries. In 2011 he took first place in the musical portion of Sweden’s Got Talent.

From the train tunnels of Chicago to Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Eric Fridrich has played all over.

A singer/ songwriter who plays some sweet guitar and some mean harmonica, his music explores blues and so much more!
