While it is always best to believe in oneself, a little help from others can be a great blessing.
Star Eyed Events was formed at the inception of Empire City Con: A Steven Universe fan convention in 2018. After two wonderful years and the finale of the show it was based on, the con had its final event in 2021.
Mayor K-K Bracken has been organizing fan cons since 2015, and is so excited to bring this new project to the world!
The Avatar fandom is very special and CabbageCon strives to create a space as warm, welcoming, inclusive, and accessible as the show it is based on.
