This weekend in Cebu City is going to be a blast as ARCHcon Cebu will be happening for two days filled with competitions, exhibits, cosplay, video games, and so much more. The said 2-day convention will be happening on November 16 and 17 at the JCentre Convention Hall.

ARCHcon is the oldest and biggest hobby event in Cebu City that started in 2004. What also made this convention stand out from the rest is that is a convention for a cause.

The convention’s name is an abbreviation for Anime, Role-Playing Games, Comics, and Hobbies Convention.  ARCHcon aims to build the growing creative hobbyist industry in Visayas and Mindanao through supporting hobbies and creating a venue that gives back to the community through talks, workshops, development activities, mini-events, and more into one awesome convention.

ARCHcon’s goal is to be an open venue for people of all walks of life to express themselves and freely showcase their world-class talent, creativity and innovation in celebration of their hobbies and interests; as well as to be an instigator of change by donating the proceeds from the event to the Sacred Heart School – Ateneo de Cebu Blue Plate Project that helps the education sector fight malnutrition amongst public elementary students through daily feeding programs.

International cosplayers Boiledcurry and Knitemaya are this year’s guests. Workshops, video game competitions, exhibits, talks, and more awaits those who will be attending this two-day event.
