Event Description

What Is The Five Points Festival?
The Five Points Festival is a collision of toys, comics, and counterculture curated by Clutter Magazine ( and presented by Midtown Comics ( A designer toy and comic convention in New York’s Lower East Side, Five Points is two days and nights of comic artists and writers, vinyl and plastic toys, original art, resin, plush, blind boxes, graphic novels, indie comics, blanks, minis, kaiju, Japanese vinyl, posters, prints, apparel, food trucks, and craft breweries - capped off by the 2017 Designer Toy Awards. The antidote to the average con, Five Points brings tastemakers, misfits, and rebels together with the new, retro, and infamous in a one-of-a-kind marketplace. 

What Isn’t The Five Points Festival?
We’re not a place to see movie premieres or get photos with TV stars. Big media-focused Comic Cons are great, but they’re not who we are. Five Points is a celebration of art and its creators - whether they make comics, toys, beer, or Korean vegan tacos.

Where Is The Five Points Festival?
The Five Points Festival takes place in Pier 36 in New York’s Lower East Side - 299 South St ( Also sometimes called Basketball City, Pier 36 sits right between the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. We’re blocks away from Mission Chinese, Meow Parlour, and the Metrograph, and right next to the East River.
