Hascon, a celebration of all things Hasbro, will skip 2018 and head straight to 2019.
Hascon is Hasbro’s attempt to create a con all their own to showcase their brands like Transformers, My Little Pony, and more. The show is also more focused on a family atmosphere, featuring many interactive zones and programming for all ages. It was well attended, and with more lead time, it could turn into a pretty cool show.
Well, they have the lead time now. Really, they have almost two years to plan the next one. The 2019 version of Hascon will be September 6th-8th in Rhode Island again, where Hasbro HQ is located. Right across the street, actually.
Second-Ever HASCON FANmily Event Scheduled for Sept. 6 – 8, 2019 in Providence, R.I.

The event featured three days of hands-on brand experiences, meet-and-greets, sneak peeks, concerts, exclusive reveals, star-studded panels and fan-centric surprises.
“We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve received from our inaugural event,” said John Frascotti, president, Hasbro, Inc. “We’re looking forward to once again delivering immersive entertainment experiences around our brands for fans and families in 2019.”
