Buildings 2017

It’s been an exciting few years for the folks here at Tsukino-Con. The convention has continued to grow bigger and better with each passing year and it would not have been possible without the continued support of our fabulous attendees.

With continuous growth comes new opportunities and with that in mind we are excited to announce our new, expanded building layout!

Tsukino-Con will now include four buildings centrally located on the University of Victoria campus; featuring a larger main auditorium, a dedicated registration area for decreased crowding and more lounge areas for between panel hang outs.

 Our Artist Alley & Vendors Building can be seen here.

Details of our new buildings can be seen below. To see who is where in the Vendor’s  Hall and Artist’s Alley, click here.

Volunteer

Tsukino-Con is hosted in association with the Uvic Anime Club and supports the celebration of Japanese culture, anime fandom, and gaming. Like most community events, the event cannot run without you: the volunteer.

Volunteers are the wonderful souls who do all the little jobs that make the convention run smoothly, from registration to concession and take-down, and even to post clean up.

Perks of volunteering include free admission, free food and beverages on shift, exclusive backstage access, and experience or references for your resume.

All volunteers who are not 18 or older by the first day of the convention will be required to submit a parental consent form no later than two days before the start of the convention.  For ease of submission, a scanned version of the completed form may be uploaded at time of application.

Please read the Volunteer Package for everything you need to know about volunteer positions.

Greetings Trainers!

Welcome to the Tsukino Con Pokeleague! This year we’ll be repeating the super league from last year, so Trainers can come and play games for fun and win prizes, including a copy of Pokemon Ω Ruby or α Sapphire! Fun games can be played on any system and the Pokemon League will even have a loaner 3DS and loaner decks for players to game with! This year, we’re also promoting the Victoria competitive scene, and will be hosting two tournaments; one for the Video Game and one for the Trading Card Game!

University of Victoria Pokemon Club
