CAPE Event 2024 - Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall’s favourite pop culture extravaganza, the Cornwall & Area Pop Event (CAPE), is set to return on Saturday, April 20th and Sunday, April 21st at the Benson Centre.

Held every April, CAPE is a two-day celebration of all things pop culture, featuring celebrity guests, artists, cosplayers, exhibitors, themed panels and much more.

“Carol (Sauve) and I focus each year on bringing the best selection of pop culture vendors along with a mix of fantastic local cosplayers and a unique selection of featured guests that are not common to this area,” said Randy Sauve, the creator of CAPE along with wife Carol. “Interest has grown from year to year for CAPE and we are very excited for our community and visitors to experience this year’s incredible event which now includes the star of Teen Wolf and Swamp Thing, Crystal Reed, who is appearing at her first convention in Canada.”

CAPE will be open from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, April 20th and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, April 21st.
