WasabiCon is Wasabi Anime‘s convention for fans of cosplay, anime, gaming and pop culture. The events are designed to create an inclusive environment for fans to immerse themselves in the otaku culture and celebrate the energy and creativity that surrounds the fandom and everything “geek.” The two-day convention features celebrity guests, local artists, exhibitors, gaming, panels, contests and much more. Daytime programming and events are designed for all ages with content appropriate for adult attendees scheduled in the evening.
Tom Croom is the mastermind behind WasabiCon and its producing company Green Mustard Entertainment. Folio’s Rob Nicholson chatted with Croom via Zoom to discuss the convention and how it came about in the first place.
WasabiCon takes place Oct. 15-16 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. As of this writing, ticket sales have exceeded 10,000 (up from 7,000 in 2021) but are still available.
