Since 2016, the Caramanga show has been the unmissable event for fans of geek culture in Lauragais. The event has continued to grow throughout its editions and each year reserves its audience many surprises and unforgettable encounters, around manga, comics and science fiction.

A lounge for the fans, by the fans

To invite you to the event, a group of organizers from Caraman and its surroundings come together each year with enthusiasm and passion to share universes that make them vibrate from a young age: from the unmissable Club Dorothée to the epic Star Wars through the superheroes of Comics and Japanese anime.

While growing at the same time as their experience, their ambition gave birth to many initiatives, sometimes delirious and always fascinating:

  • Costume contests (called cosplays)
  • Drawing competitions
  • Exhibitions
  • Video game tournaments
  • Lightsaber initiations
  • Origami initiations (folding artistic paper)
  • Demonstrations of sports fighting, hip hop and acrobatics
  • Duels of tea and umbrellas
  • Conferences

Headliners

If their names sometimes mean nothing to you, several cult and recognized personalities of the geek community have already appeared at the Caramanga show. Each year, these honored guests come to meet their audience:

  • Cartoonists, screenwriters and comic book publishers
  • Science fiction writers and authors
  • Voice actors of famous actors and characters
