Areas of Rose City Jr. – Expo Hall E


Jr. Movement Zone

If there’s one thing we know about our littlest fans, it’s that they like to move it, move it!

Shake a tail feather and get ready to get down in our wildly popular Movement Zone. During The Force Experience, you’ll get a chance to train with real Jedi Masters and protect the galaxy from the Sith. Make some cool slime with the Portland Ghostbusters during their hands-on slime-making experience! All this and more awaits in the Movement Zone! The Movement Zone will be programmed with activities and special events happening all weekend long that will let your kids be kids!

Jr. Workshops

If you’ve got an aspiring artist in the family, or just love comic books, then our creative Workshops are the place to be.

Connect with professional artists like Mark Mariano, Chris Mariano, and more as they teach, color, play, and create with you. Drawing was never so much fun! Grab a pencil, marker, crayon – whatever! – and grab a seat for a lesson in our Workshops area. Create your own comic book, crusade with cats, learn how comics are created, and play goofy games with awesome artists!
