Japanese Culture Convention ‘Setsucon’ To Return In Person Starting January 28

Central Pennsylvania’s annual Japanese culture convention, Setsucon, will return to an in-person format this month from 6 p.m. on Friday, January 28, to 6 p.m. on Sunday, January 30, at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, Pa.

Badges for the convention can be purchased at the door for the following rates:

  • $40 for a weekend badge
  • $30 for a Saturday-only badge
  • $20 for a Sunday-only badge

The convention is hosted by the Penn State Anime Organization, which has been celebrating anime, manga, and cosplay for more than 15 years. The club aims to bring a safe and comfortable space for anime and manga fans to come together.

Setsucon will feature different activities and events all weekend long, including the first-ever Charity Gaming Tournament. All proceeds from the tournament will go benefit the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Four free concerts will be available to all Setsucon attendees: Otaku Ongaku, Heroes 4 Hire, Awesomus Prime, and ThaGATAnegrra. Voice actors Brittany Lauda and Matt Shipman, tabletop gaming guest Charles Dunbar, and a number of DJs and cosplay judges will also attend.

You can check out Setsucon’s website to find more information about the weekend’s events.
