Mark your calendars, break out your costumes, and perfect your mad video game skills because MosaiCon will be returning in 2017. It has been confirmed by none other than Marc Gervais, General Coordinator for Nanaimo’s multifaceted fandom convention. Gervais has a table at this year’s anime and cosplay convention, Tsukino-Con, at the University of Victoria campus. Gervais was able to confirm the dates for MosaiCon are Saturday and Sunday, September 16th and 17th of 2017. Gervais informed this journalist that a meeting will be held with MosaiCon’s board to decide a location to host the con.
Last year’s MosaiCon was held September 10th and 11th at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. It gave Nanaimo’s fan community a much-needed boost by offering something for gamers, cosplayers, and anime fans. The con’s guests, groups and organizations included Samantha Wheeldon of Scarlette Cosplay, Medieval Chaos Productions, and Forever Dreaming Cosplay.
MosaiCon started in 2015. It was the first in Nanaimo to present fandom under one umbrella while giving the electronic gaming industry space to show off their latest hardware and software.
