Youmacon 2018

Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Wearing costumes, or “Cosplay” as it’s known at conventions, is very popular with attendees of Youmacon. It is not uncommon to walk into a pair of Italian plumbers in overalls on the escalator, only to meet someone dressed as Edward Elric or Master Chief from Halo minutes later.

Fantasticon – S6-EP19 – MT. PLEASANT

The Fantasticon is a mid-size show created for true comic book and pop culture collectors. The fans that come to our shows are true collectors that are looking for those rare items for their personal collections. Most leave very satisfied as we pride ourselves on having great dealers and artists at our shows. If you collect it, you will find it at a Fantasticon Show. We also are very proud of the fact that our admission price is the lowest of any of the other shows. And the cost for being an exhibitor or artist at the Fantasticon is far less than any other comic cons out there.

Autumn Tri-Cities Furmeet!

There’s getting to be a chill in the air, the trees are starting to show their colors, and orange gourds are appearing on porches . . . that means it’s time for our Autumn Furmeet!

All are welcome to come join in a spooky gathering. There is no charge to attend, but please consider donating so we can keep hosting meets, and bring either supplies or treats. Fursuits are welcome and encouraged! The park is quite scenic, and with the trees changing, it will make for a good setting for fursuit photos.

We will be having a campfire, apple cider, hot chocolate, and pizza for dinner!
