Who are we?
Yushi-Con is a multi-genre anime convention taking place in the Poconos at Monroe County. Previously hosted by ESU’s Anime Club with support from the ESU Game Society, Yushi-Con has been put together in the hopes of bringing not only the anime fandom but people from all fandoms together in the East Stroudsburg area. Yushi-Con’s 2014 debut attracted 150 local attendees while their 2015 event doubled to 300 attendees from all around the tri-state area.
What are our goals?
Our goal is to bring the animation, gaming, and geek industry-at-large to the Monroe County area. We have attracted industry guests and presenters from all over the tri-state area, such as Mike Pollock, voice of Dr. Eggman from “Sonic the Hedgehog,” Erica Schroeder, and Lisa Ortiz. We want to help breathe a blossoming creative presence into the Poconos area, and give the local area a chance to network with other passionate animation and gaming fans and creators.
