Attend Triad Anime Con in Greensboro March 2-4, 2018

Are you going to be in Greensboro, NC this weekend? If so, you may want to swing by the Koury Convention Center (near the Four Seasons Mall) to check out Triad Anime Con! The con runs from Friday, March 2 to Sunday, March 4 and it’s shaping up to be quite a party! While I highly encourage visiting the con’s website for more details, here’s a basic low-down on the event.

How Much Does it Cost?

Preregistration for Triad Anime Con has ended, but you can still purchase a pass at the door.

Three Day Badge: $45
Friday Only: $30
Saturday Only: $35
Sunday Only: $18

Children under 10 get in free with an adult, but minors don’t require an adult to attend the con with them. The convention center is right near a mall and movie theater, so there’s plenty for non-Anime fans to do instead.

Please take note The registration page says they will accept cash and card at the door, but the Q&A page says on-site registration is cash only. Just to be on the safe side, I recommend bringing some cash along!

Who Will Be There?

Who indeed!

Here are a few of the main anime voice actors who will be attending Triad Anime Con as guests:
