Exhibitor Hall

The Vendor/Exhibitor Hall is open 8 hours or more each day. It offers comics, manga, anime, craft goods, J-Pop merchandise, and exotic snacks from Japan. There are loads of local artists selling their wares along with prop dealers and other fun exhibitors to interact with.

When the Exhibitor Hall closes there is a corner of the convention that fans who still have money to spend wander over to: The Otaku Closet. Here local anime enthusiasts offer their gently used wares for attendees to purchase.

Our Cosplay Savant will be at the event each day. Be sure to check our FACEBOOK feed for live videos and photos. Not a video person? Then come visit Saboten Con this weekend and party with some of the wildest, most sensational fans you’ll ever meet!
