​WASABICON is Jacksonville, Florida’s favorite pop culture convention celebrating cosplay, video games, anime, tabletop gaming, comics, and “all things geek”.

 Wasabi Con

The seventh year of the event will take place at the Lexington Hotel & Conference Center – Jacksonville Riverwalk on Saturday and Sunday: October 20-21, 2018.

WasabiCon is a family-friendly event that is open to all ages. Attendees have access to artists, vendors, celebrity guests, video games, tabletop games, a viewing room, and much more throughout the weekend.

This year's featured artist is local illustrator and animator Brittani Crawford (better known by her artist moniker Fluffy Butt Arts). Crawford might be a featured guest, but she's also a fellow cosplayer to the attendees eager to arrive dressed as their favorite fictional characters.

Crawford's inspiration comes largely from the world of video games and anime and those attending WasabiCon 2018 will also be able to meet popular voice actor Justin Briner, another luminary from that same corner of the cultural universe.
