Tricon WV 2019 Experience
I attended Tricon WV in Huntington, WV on 6/8/2019 as an artist in the artist alley. I was very excited to attend this event because this con is in my top 5 favorite events. This was my 3rd year selling at this event, and I was not disappointed!
Tricon is a one day event, but don't let that fool you! It is well attended and foot traffic is consistent up until the last hour.
Load in is the evening before or the morning of. You can park your car right on the street or in the small lot outside of the loading dock which makes load in a breeze. You can park in these places for free during set up and during the actual event. You get a roomy 10x10 space with an 8 foot table and curtains provided for no extra cost.
Hours were from 9 to 6. One of the nice workers will come around asking if you'd like to donate an item to the charity auction, which is something I always try to do. The charity auction was held at 4 o clock and the cosplay contest at 5 o clock. The day goes by very fast because it is so busy, so I always try to pack a lunch!
This is a great event for folks just starting out because booth fees are inexpensive, but it is also great for those with more experience under their belts because it is such a well attended event. I highly recommend it to anybody that is into well ran, good old fashioned, home town cons! I already cannot wait until next year!
