WHAT IS TAG FEST?
TAG Fest, which stands for Toledo Anime & Gaming Festival, is a one-day celebration of gaming and anime. At TAG Fest, you can play video games in our huge game room, challenge fellow gamers to competitions and tournaments, or partake in some tabletop or collectible card gaming. We'll also have anime screenings running the entire day, as well as panels and other events. Dealers will also be offering a variety of gaming and anime merchandise! Most of all, it's a place to hang out with friends and make new ones!
TAG Fest first ran on December 3, 2011 and featured awesome gaming tournaments, a great selection of dealers,and exciting events, and brought in 200 attendees!
After a three year haitus, the Glass City Con crew took over the event and brought it back to Toledo in on January 24, 2015! Considered a reboot over a true sequel, TAG Fest 1.5 featured more gaming, more anime, more events, more dealers, and... just more! We welcomed 400 attendees to our event, starting off with a bang! Be sure to check out the pictures from the event, provided by Creaotic Images!

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The Anthony Wayne Bridge (High Level Bridge, Woodville Road) will be closed during the convention. This will affect travlers on Ohio State Routes 2, 51, and 65. We recommend taking Interstate 75.
HOW MUCH IS ADMISSION?
Admission is just $5 per person at the door. Don't forgot you'll also be spending money on merch, food, events, and game tournaments!
WHERE DO I PARK?
There are a number of lots located near the SeaGate Centre. You can park at one of those, or park in the underground parking garage located on the Summit Street side of the SeaGate Centre, accessible by the circle drive. Please note parking will be limited there. Rates will vary, but are usually $3 - $6, depending on where you park. Unfortunately, we are unable to determine parking prices, as these are set by their respective owners.
Street parking is free on the weekends. Be sure to use caution when choosing a spot, and make sure you are allowed to park in the spot you stop at!
ARE YOU OFFERING PRE-REGISTRATION?
Not this time. Pre-reg was not a well-utilized feature last go around. After all, how much of a discount can we provide on five bucks? Admission for TAG Fest 2.0 can be paid for at the door this year, and we will be offering credit card and PayPal options at the show as well!
WHO IS THE MASCOT ARTIST?
Our lovely Sakura has gone through several iterations in her life. Created by Kevin Copus and refined by Halah Mohamed, Sakura was overhauled by the very talented Seth Hengstler of Seth Illustrations for TAG Fest 1.5. Not one to reuse artwork, we commissioned the amazing Mandy E. of Yamer Pro to create yet another look for Sakura for TAG Fest 2.0. Be sure to drop by their booths and purchase a print!
I SENT YOU AN E-MAIL, BUT NEVER HEARD BACK!
We try to answer e-mail daily (save for the weekend, because we need time to actually watch anime), so if you haven't received a response to your question, please try again. If you're trying to volunteer, purchase a booth, or anything like that, we'll send a confirmation e-mail to let you know you're all set.
If you haven't received a reply from us, check your spam folder to make sure it didn't end up there. If there isn't a reply, contact us again. It's not that we're ignoring you; the e-mail probably got lost along the way.
You can also contact us via Facebook or Twitter.
IS TAG FEST STILL AFFILIATED WITH OWENS COMMUNITY COLLEGE?
No. The TAG Fest staff and Owens Community College decided it would be mutually beneficial to part ways. TAG Fest is now seperate from Owens Community College and is now operated by Glass City Con LLC.
WAIT, THERE'S A BIG CHANGE TO THE EVENT?
The harshest reality is there are going to be changes as we find things that aren't working, aren’t right, or have someone bail on us the night before the event. Check the site, Facebook or Twitter often to ensure the most up-to-date information.
I FOUND AN ERROR ON THE WEBSITE! SHOULD I REPORT IT?
Yes! While we try to keep the site error free, bugs do slip in from time to time. If you find broken link, mispelled word, or something that looks funky (not including Big Uncle Fuku), contact us immediately at email@example.com. We'll fix the problem ASAP!
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT...
Not that we don’t want to hear from you, but if you have a question about the event and you haven’t looked through the site, please take a moment to check it out. More than likely you’ll find your answer somewhere around there. If there’s mention of work still being done on the site, check back! Chances are, if it’s not done yet, we don’t know.
However, if something looks missing, or you have any questions or comments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
