My first Garden State Comic Fest was in 2015, two years ago, and I was really excited to return! GSCF, held in Morristown, NJ, has a really chill, mature environment, the guests are high quality, the vendors are unique, and they always put on a really great show.
It's the only con I've ever heard of that's held in an ice rink, which is a convenient way to beat the July heat! They've recently expanded their programming to include cosplay ice skating, a two-hour event where cosplayers get to skate around in their costumes. It's pretty great.
Make sure to check out the gallery from the event below!
