Tsubasacon has announced an expansion when it returns October 10, 11. and 12 to the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington, WV. Jack Varney has confirmed that the convention will move from the convention center to the Arena, "more than doubling our space."

The "con's" scope of programming expands to include current pop culture, while "remaining true to our roots of anime, gaming, cosplay and Japanese culture," Varney said. 

"We are partnering with Tricon which is a 'win-win' for both conventions. This new cross-promotion will help establish Huntington and the Tri-State as a destination for the art  form of comics, anime, cosplay and gaming," Varney said.

Tsubasacon, founded in 2004, is West Virginia's first and only anime convention.  Previously located in Charleston, Tsubasacon has called Huntington, WV home for the past eight years, hosting over 1000 attendees at the most recent convention.  Tsubasacon has been praised for its small-convention feel and hospitality while providing the people of West Virginia an experience comparable to larger cities.
