Wasabi-Con—Wasabi Anime’s convention for fans of cosplay, anime, tabletop gaming, video games, and Asian pop culture—has three events on the horizon, and it’s almost time for the fun to begin. WasabiCon is set to kick things off from October 13-15, 2023 in Jacksonville, FL, followed by WasabiCon NOLA from May 11-12, 2024 in New Orleans, LA and WasabiCon PDX from July 26-28, 2024 in Portland, OR, and you can get in on the excitement today! 

Fandom is family at WasabiCon, which aims to provide an inclusive environment in which fans can immerse themselves, and there will be plenty for all to enjoy at each event. A bunch of guests have already been confirmed, including voice actors Clifford Chapin (Katsuki Bakugo in My Hero Academia), David Matranga (Shoto Todoroki in My Hero Academia), Kristen McGuire (Milim Nava in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), and Sarah Natochenny (Ash in Pokémon Master Journeys). 

Featured talent ranges from performers like Bebop Bounty Big Band, who will be putting on a Cowboy Bebop Live show, to influencers, artists, cosplayers, and more. There will be something in store for everyone, and more updates are on the way in the weeks leading up to launch. 

WasabiCon will be held at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center in Jacksonville, FL from October 13-15, 2023.
