Gobble-Con is canceling indefinitely everyone. We tried to make everything better by postponing last year but it has come to this regrettable conclusion. Gobble cannot be run by a small handful of people, and to those people who did their best to assist us when we needed it, we thank you.

The lovely ladies of Tenshi no Ai will be hosting Gobble-Con’s first ever Maid Cafe!!! They’re preparing a spread of sweets just for you guys as well as hosting their own dance panels with prizes! We’re very excited to have a Maid Cafe for our third year.
Gobble-Con is excited to announce that Spike Spencer will be joining us this year! Spike has an array of panels set up for everyone to enjoy. This also makes three out of four of the Evangelion Rebuild voice actors are officially attending Gobble-Con 2013! We hope you all enjoy having Spike and lets all make his first Connecticut convention great!
ATTENTION ARTISTS AND DEALERS!
Recently Gobble-Con’s venue size has tripled, offering us more space as well as allowing us to have, for the first time ever, separate rooms for our Artists and Dealers on top of hallway/floor space. Due to this, we are offering two different types of tables; “Open” and “Secured”.
If you want a Secured table you will not have to break down your table at the end of the day and all your product will be kept in a locked room over night. The only downfall is you will be paying a little extra for this option.
If you want an Open table you will be responsible for breaking down and securing your own products. Gobble-Con will not be doing this for you nor are we to be held responsible for lost/stolen items should you choose not to pack up your table at the end of the day. This option is also cheaper if you dont mind the work.
Due to our size increase, prices will also be going up. Prices for the new A/V options are as follows;
Artist Open - $50.00 USD
Artist Secured - $100.00 USD
Dealer Open - $100.00 USD
Dealer Secured - $175.00 USD
If you have put in a sign up form prior to this change, you have until Dec. 31st, 2012 to send in your payment of the previous prices. If you do not do so, we will have to charge you for updated prices instead. And since this change was made AFTER you signed up, we will automatically put you in a secured room.
Gobble needs Staff and Giblets!! Our venue has recently tripled in size and we need extra hands for event/panel I.D. and badge checks, registration assistance, prize bagging, tech help, etc. You can sign up on the Gobble website or if you need more information, feel free to comment or PM us!
Please note that if you’ve marked yourself as “Going” to the “Angels at Gobble Indiegogo Fundraiser” event, it means you intend to sponsor/donate to this fundraiser, even if it’s only the $1 option. This is not the con event invite. Please pass the link along on whichever social media you choose to as well. We need every little bit of help. Thank You!
Our $5 perk has been updated! You will now get two (2) buttons of your liking from the Dealer’s Room as well as a special thank you in the program book!
