PHOENIX — Saboten Con is an annual Japanese-themed pop-culture convention held in Phoenix, Arizona and organized by Monkey Paw Entertainment. “Saboten Con is the largest anime convention in Arizona with attendance reaching 6,745 (unique) / 20,983 (turnstile) for the 2015 event.” (Source: SabotenCon.com)
This year, Saboten Con took place at Sheraton Downtown Phoenix for four long days — August 31 – September 3. The convention brings us all that you would expect and more with masquerades, raves, fashion shows, panels, workshops, contests, meet-and-greets, shopping, gaming, live music, maid and anime cafes, and of course loads of cosplay… just to name some of the main staples.
Here’s just a small sample of what you can expect from the grand, jam-packed event that caters to a vast array of fandoms, with a gallery of highlights by Andrea Stoica. Mark your calendar for Labor Day weekend next year!
