Tsubasacon occurs annually in Huntington, West Virginia at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena and Riverfront Ballroom and Conference Center. Huntington is located within three hours of the majority of West Virginia, Columbus, Cincinnati, Lexington, Louisville, and Christiansburg.
Tsubasacon is located within walking distance of Holiday Inn, Pullman Plaza, and Pullman Square where there are numerous dining options.
Although our room blocks are sold out, an easy reference for surrounding hotels:
There is plenty of parking at The Pullman Plaza garage, and the daily rates are quite affordable.
D.C. Douglas will forever be known as the sinister voice of Albert Wesker (“Resident Evil”), screaming “Chriiiisssss” as he melts in a lava lake. This is a far cry from his other roles, such as the persnickety alien Zepht in “Star Trek: Enterprise” or the logical Legion in the “Mass Effect” videogame series. It’s especially a far cry from his groovy love-in beginnings in Berkeley, California, where he was born.
Thank you to ALL of the applicants this year! It was really tough decision this year since everyone is so absolutely talented!!
All artists who applied will be receiving their letters shortly on whether they have been accepted or not.
We'll be posting the official artist list over the next few weeks.
Showcase your video editing skills!
Greg Wicker (or “Greggo” as he’s fondly known) has been producing and hosting game shows at anime conventions since 1999, when he premiered Anime Match Game at Project A-Kon in Dallas. Since then, Greggo has done anime-themed versions of several classic game shows, created a few games of his own, and even had an original project that very nearly turned into an actual television show on Anime Network. These days Greggo is concentrating on perfecting his craft and making game shows available for conventions everywhere, bringing his rapier wit and friendly personality with him wherever he goes. You can see some of Greggo’s past game show efforts on his YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/gregdasgo or visit his website at http://greggosgameshows.com.
We are excited to announce an increase to our scope of programming and events in 2014.
Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, the arena was not available this year as we had hoped and planned. The good news is that we are booked and ready for the move to the larger space in 2015!
However, that did not deter us from looking at alternative locations, this year, to compliment the space in the Big Sandy Superstore Conference Center and provide YOU a bigger and better Tsubasacon. The location we chose was the City Auditorium in Huntington City Hall. It's a great venue and only 2 blocks from BSSA.
We are still in the planning phases of what specifically will be there and are only using that facility on Saturday, October 11. Again, when we have more details we will let you know about what events/programming will be at that location.
Finally, just to clarify, we are only ADDING a separate location for 1 night. We are not moving anything away from the Big Sandy Superstore Arena Conference Center location. On Saturday, October 11th we will be expanding space to provide more events that day only.

We apologize for closing the Artist Alley early, but as we have received THREE TIMES the amount of applications for the number or tables available and we needed to get our judges started on going through the applications! We still hope to have the judging completed early in July so artists won't have to wait too long to know whether they have been accepted or not.
