First Annual Five Points Fest




FIVE POINTS FEST: designer toy and

comic convention

Designer Toys + Comics + Street Art + Beer + NYC


This past weekend I attended the first annual Five Points Festival curated by Clutter Magazine and presented by Midtown Comics.

This awesome two day event, held in the Lower East Side of Manhattan featured Designer Toys, Beer, Food Trucks, Street Art, Comics and More!


Outside the convention you could find craft breweries and a good range of Food trucks which were provided by Live Fast Group.

The convention consisted of a good size Artist Alley, full of exhibitors, toys, merch, and even comic artist and writer signings!

I had a blast hanging out and checking out all the cool Merch.

I snagged a bunch of goodies, and chatted it up with some super cool artists. Got some prints signed by some of my favorite artists.

Definitely a fun event that I would recommend to any comic fan, toy collector or art enthusiast. 

Felt like an old con, good times, great art, and good vibes.
