Khem Fest is a convention, festival, and celebration. Our goal of the event is to use comic books, animation, films, and popular culture to develop youth literacy and expression through S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). Hence, we created a festival that will feature and promote creators of comics, animation, books, film, and other media with a focus on people of color; culture, concepts, and interests. Our festival is for everyone and a diverse networking event for professionals as well as enthusiasts to aspire, inspire and appreciate people of color contributions as it relates to Popular Arts media. KHEM FEST is not limited to comics. Our events highlight other literary genres like speculative fiction, as well as video games, collectible toys and models, films/documentaries, and all other media related to the Popular Arts.

KHEM FEST will also provide relevant, engaging, informative entertainment and professional networking opportunities for the Newark community. Among the attractions provided are interactive activities which include; Animation Film Festival, Marketplace, Comic Book workshops, Panel Discussions, Screenings, and Gaming Lounge. Our organization works with its community partners to promote awareness of the competition and the many activities taking place to serve as a bridge to bring the community together.
