???Hazard Con is a pop-culture convention, with a focus on anime, manga, video games, and comics. Created by the local non-profit organization, Society of Utils, Hazard Con was created as a fun, all ages event for all pop-culture fans in the tristate area. Our vision is to provide a fun, safe environment for fans during a time of year when pop-culture events are sparse in the region. Our July, 2017 event will mark the first year of Hazard Con, and we would love to see you there!

His battle flag being the famous “Don’t Give Up The Ship”. He has a huge part in Erie heritage, having a monument on Presque Isle, as well as a park downtown named after him.
