I've only ever been to two cons, although my dad thinks they're cool and because of a very long story that involves a spontaneous disney trip because my cousins who live in Charleston were going at the time he's been trying to push for me to be allowed to get into my hobbies more, so we're trying to be able to go to even more ^^ I know that I'll be going to Tora-con next year, and possibly Katsucon and Otakon. If anyone could tell me of some cons going on in or near new york state, boston, baltimore, or all the way down in charleston, by the way, that'd be awesome xD as my dad has stated "we have peeps there, so your mom would be cool with it" (yes. that is actually and exact quote.)

Usually my convention quota is 2 conventions a year. A-kon and AnimeFest in Dallas. But I've been expanding recently. I've ventured out further and I've ended up going/attempting to go to about 5 or 6 this year. As you get older, you get more freedom to go to more cons. The number may still continue to rise. The year isn't over yet.

I usually only go to around 4 or 5 per year (NYCC, AnimeNEXT, Otakon, Anime Boston, and Connecticon). But I also now go to renfairs and various cosplay meetups.
I was supposed to go to 10 cons this year because my friends went to colleges near cons, but now I'm not sure that I will have time for that :P

But I believe that you can never go to too many cons! lol as long as you have the money for it

It's a pirate's life for me! Savvy?

I generally go to two, rarely three a year. Guaranteed I always make it to Otakon, and often enough I go to Zenkaikon since (until recently) literally just a 20 minute drive from my house. Shame the VFCC had to be renovated and turned into a casino... Now the convention is way out in Bumblefuck, PA. Last year I ended up going to Katsucon. It was fun so I might go again sometime.

I'd really like to visit more conventions, because they are great ways for me to actually see my friends, but sadly they are kind of expensive.

I use to go to one a year, but last year I did 3 cons. This year it'll be at least 4, but may go one day of another small con, so maybe 5 this year. The number of cons for me keeps building up XD

I usually go to 3 or 4 per year: C2E2, ACen, AX, and Anime World Chicago.

This year has been a bit more hectic since I've pushed it to 6: Chicon 7, and Youma.

Don't think I got the stamina for a 7th one.

Wow, it must be nice to live close to so many different cons xD

At most I attend two cons a year: Anime North and Fan Expo.
Those are the only ones that I'm aware of in the city xD
I don't have the means to travel outside of the city for more =(

It'd be nice to go to ComicCon or another big con in the US someday though!

I usually go to two big cons and maybe one or two smaller conventions some that are even free. This year though I've gone to three conventions and I'm hoping to go to four next year before I'm shipped off to college and become a poor college student haha

I only ever go to one convention a year, due to location and cost, it's about all I've got. There have been a couple of instances where I've been able to make it to two conventions in a year, but those are few and very far between. I'd love to be able to get to more conventions down in the states, but I have no one who wants to come with me and share hotel costs, it sucks -_-

Between 4 and 6 depending on finances.
I literally scrimp and save to attend them two of them are only one day events which makes them cheaper as I only have the train to pay for. one of them I stay at a friends house so I save on the hotel. Two are huge 3 day events which I would not pass up for the world so I splash out on them.
The final one I have not attended yet but I hope to it will be my first one abroad 0_o so yeah missed it this year from lack of money but fingers crossed I will manage it next year

Usually about 4-6 cons a year, depending on money, who i'd be staying with and transportation. It's nice being between the bay area and Sacramento. lots of cons of all different sizes all year round :3

Currently I've only been able to go to one per year due to budget costs and convenience being the primary reasons. Me and my friends however have plans for eventually attending more annually.

I'll be attending my 7th con of the year at the end of the month. But normally I go to 4-5, and only have to pay admission for 1-2 of those. :3
