Fall Festival: Pop Into Comics!


Fall Festival: Pop Into Comics!
MCM Partners’ Signature Family Fundraiser

Thank you for supporting Fall Festival: Pop into Comics!  This year’s event was our most successful Fall Festival to date, with over $54,000 raised to support the museum. Fall Festival provides critical operating revenue that enables MCM to remain accessible to all children, keeping admission prices low and programs free of charge to all visitors. Thank you for being such an important member of the MCM community!

The Pop into Comics theme was chosen because so many children first learn to read through dynamic pictures and adventurous storytelling—and comics are an engaging form literature for our youngest readers! The children who attended this year were able to imagine themselves as the heroes and heroines of their own super story—all while improving their physical fitness at the superhero training camp, enjoying healthy dinner treats and meeting some of their favorite superheroes who showed up in costume!
