Central Coast Comicon is the annual major fundraiser for RYSS and we are sad to announce that our 2020 event has been unfortunately been cancelled due to the impact from the current health restrictions we face as a community regarding public gathering events.
We wish to keep the magic alive and community connected, while still raising much-needed funds for vulnerable Central Coast young people and celebrating pop culture online with our COVID-Com celebrations.
There will be competitions, prizes, and promotional opportunities for our vendors, artists and entertainers to promote their businesses as we appreciate this is a trading opportunity lost for many.
Follow our social media and visit our online shop to see our the merch and raffle tickets we are selling to raise funds for RYSS and retail opportunities for our vendors.

Pop Culture for Charity
Regional Youth Support Services is a leading Central Coast Youth Charity based in the heart of Gosford. They took on the Central Coast Comicon event 4 years ago and it has now become the major annual fundraiser. All the proceeds raised at Central Coast Comicon go directly to delivering frontline youth support and innovative engagement strategies to young people between the ages of 12 and 25, and their families in communities throughout the Central Coast.
RYSS is now in its third decade of providing local, intensive case management, community outreach programs, early intervention support, family reconnections, indigenous support programs, events, and activities. RYSS’ longstanding history on the Central Coast means that we possess a deeply grounded understanding of the local needs and diversity across the many communities in the region – an understanding that helps drive our many innovative and focused programs and support strategies.
