“Discover the magic of the Zwinsteden in comics at our International Comic Festival!”

Sunday 28 April 2024, Knokke-Heist will host the 21st International Comic Strip Festival, organised by the non-profit association Strippromotie Knokke-Heist in cooperation with the municipality. This promising event will take place in Zaal Ravelingen at Koudekerkelaan 33 in Knokke-Heist, and again this year admission is completely free.


The theme of this 21st Comic Strip Festival is ‘Zwinsteden in the comic strip’, with a mini-expo dedicated to the Zwinsteden in the comic strip and a wonderful overview of the various posters created over the years for the Knokke-Heist Comic Strip Festival.

The festival welcomes an impressive line-up of some 60 illustrators, including international luminaries such as Indonesian Apri Kusbiantoro (known from Storm), Claus Scholz from Belgium/Germany, Fabio Bono from Italy, and Thierry Capezzone from Denmark with his work “Pol”. Visitors can also look forward to top Belgian artists such as Batem with “Marsupilami”, Philippe Delzenne with “Jommeke”, and many others.

Sunday 28 April promises to be a day full of comic adventure for young and old. Besides numerous comic book publishers who will be present with cosy stands, the Knokke-Heist library will also promote its comic book collection and organise fun activities for the whole family. Think about immortalising yourself as a comic book character at the photobooth, a treasure hunt for Bollie and Billie with your children, and building a comic book character together with LEGO bricks.

The prestigious event will be kicked off on Saturday evening with the Strip Award Show, where various comic book awards will be presented in the presence of numerous public figures and cartoonists. All this will take place at De Ravelingen, and promises to be a true spectacle.

In short, the 21st International Comic Festival of Knokke-Heist is an unmissable event for comic fans of all ages. Be there and experience an unforgettable weekend full of comic book adventure!
