Hi~! Welcome to NC!
I'm an NC native currently living in Charlotte. Con-wise, we have Animazement, which is our staple con. It's held every May and just changed locations from Durham to Raleigh. It's become fairly large over the past few years (hence the change in venues). We just recently aquired a new con, Ichibancon, which was held at the Great Wolf Lodge. This was actually it's first year and it was very successful. If you're into comics, we also have Heroes'Con and a few smaller comic/scifi cons.
