I attended Huntington Comic Con (formerly Tricon) in Huntington, WV on 6/4/2022 and 6/5/2022 as an artist in the artist alley. I had no idea what to expect going into this con now that it is ran by different folks. While it isn't as amazing as Tricon used to be, I can't complain about this fun 2 day event!
Compared to Tricon, foot traffic was not quite as heavy, however, Tricon used to be a one day event vs this being a 2 day event. With that being said, I cannot complain about the foot traffic of the event overall. Booth prices are a bit more pricey than what Tricon used to be, but are reasonable for the amount of foot traffic.
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.
This is a great event for folks just starting out because booth fees aren't terribly, but it is also great for those with more experience under their belts because a well attended event. I can't wait to see this event grow through the years, and I plan on setting up at this event next year!
