Welcome to Convention Tuesdays! Every Tuesday, I will feature and highlight conventions happening during the upcoming weekend in Alabama, or within short driving distances from Alabama.
July 19-21 — Hamacon — Huntsville, Alabama
Hamacon stands for Huntsville & Madison Anime Convention; in other words, we’re the Rocket City’s anime con! We run two major events each year – a three day full fledged con in the summer, and a one day con in November. At both cons we treat you with tons of amazing events and panels, a big ol’ gaming area for both video games as well as the tabletop variety, a Dealer’s Room, an Artist Alley, Cosplay, and more! Not to mention, we try and sprinkle as many smaller events we can throughout the year as well.
Major guests include Micah Solusod, Ayu Sakata, Chuck Huber, and more. Major events include a cosplay contest, Hamacon rave, music video contest, and more! Learn more at: http://hama-con.com/
