THIS ONE is the gathering nearest our heart. Beautiful area, casual atmosphere, low crowds, approachable guests, wonderful staff. And as a registered organization promoting local education, there are tax deduction benefits to be had.
This was my second year attending, my boyfriend's first. We were able to go all four days, & had such a blast!
I LOVE HawaiiCon, not just for the lack of long lines and huge crowds, but for the intimacy and the 'ohana feeling! Not to mention the fact that there is no better location in the world!!
I feel it's the best comic con because its so easy to meet and talk with everybody and anybody. You can feel the aloha spirit permeate the pure and pristine island.
HawaiiCon offers an experience like no other convention in the world, it not only allows you the opportunity to enjoy the amazing opportunity to enjoy paradise in Hawaii. But also allows you to be able to hang out with celebrities and enjoy the convention at the same time!
The atmosphere is relaxed, people are friendly, and there are even projects for children to do. Every year we meet and make new friends and this is an event worth attending!
I will be going every year! (started their 2nd year) Super chill, great guests and panels. I am stoked that this exists on the Big Island. I love the ability to just chat and chill with anyone.
Went last year and this was the best one I have seen in years. Everyone was relaxed and the celebs were very approachable. It was just plain fun. medical problems prevent me from going this year. I'm planing on going next year. Well organized and ran very smooth , no oops or problems. Don't miss it if you can go.
wow what a great event,some minor hiccups here and there but nothing that can't be fixed. the volunteer staff here are such hard workers. awesome actors and guest panellist . Awesome event coming next year!
