Causeacon® is Beckley’s first ever Pop Culture convention which includes all fandoms from anime to Star Wars, gaming and so much more! The best part about Causeacon® is that it is a charity convention where we raise money to help benefit the local Women’s Resource Center which gives education and shelter to men, women and children who suffer from domestic and sexual violence.

We will be offering a variety of activities at our new location, The Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center including: cosplay contests, video game and table top tournaments, vendor room, panels and classes, anime screening room, game shows, raves and a formal ball! You can benefit this community just by attending and having a great time!
