The Rochester Indie Comics Expo (RICE) is a showcase of local and regional comics creators, who will be selling their original work and connecting with the community. The event has something for all ages.

This year, RICE is made up of three FREE events between March 24 and 25:

  • Comics showcase (7-9 p.m. Friday, March 24, at the Strong National Museum of Play) — learn more

There will be FREE parking available in the Mortimer Street Garage. It has a skyway connection to the second floor of Sibley Square.
