We are back again for 2019! Same place new dates.
Hazard Con will be returning to the Ambassador Conference Center in Erie, PA next summer. Come join us July 26th -28th.
We will be updating our website with all of the new information soon, but for now, keep your eyes on our Facebook page for the most current Hazard Con news!
VIP upgrades are now available!
The VIP add-on allows you to attend the VIP Japanese snack tasting, with our special guest Charles Dunbar! Every attendee who purchases this add-on will receive a special "swag bag" at the registration table, which includes an official Hazard Con 2018 T-shirt. This add-on is limited to just 20 attendees.
*This is an add-on to an already purchased registration.*
This year we have official Hazard Con T-Shirts! You can purchase one at the registration table for only $20. Supplies will be limited.
Some of you probably noticed our updated cover photo, or the font announcing our dates on the website. Maybe you noticed that the first day of Hazard Con this year falls on Friday the 13th. Even if you didn't notice, we did. That is why this year's theme is horror!
All of our 2018 artwork has been created by the very talented Raiden Kubiak. Check him out at: raidenoliverart.wixsite.com/raidenkubiak
We are pleased to announce that the talented Nancy Kepner will be joining us for Hazard Con 2018!

It’s easy for her, because at heart she’s just a huge fan… who sets her love of all things anime fandom related to music. Armed with a guitar and clever song lyrics, Nancy Kepner has performed songs such as “The Explaining Anime to Your Parents song” And “They found out about my Yaoi” at numerous conventions.
