This is one of those conventions that came about almost by accident. In 2013, the Erie Anime Experience was closed with only thirty days notice. The fans felt that left a void so in that short timeframe, they arranged a new convention that was dubbed BlurrieCon. The first convention was small, but it grew from there, moving to a larger venue the following year and two years later an even larger venue.
This year was once again a challenge for them as they lost their venue, but thanks to Gannon University, they found a new home while keeping their date.
