An annual event had a stunning turnout compared to previous years. Causeacon is a three day pop culture event that was held at the Beckley Raleigh County Convention Center. According to event coordinators their attendance numbers doubled from last year to this year. They also told 59 News that they exceeded their goal of over $30,000 as far as raising money for the Women’s Resource Center.
Participants said it was an overall success.
“It was just really cool because it was people from everywhere. There was a lot of locals but there was people traveling from Virginia I met, Huntington, all over. It’s just that one chance, that one weekend where they can be among people who have similar interests and likes, and it’s almost like a family reunion coming together and celebrate all things pop culture and to get dressed up and have a ton of fun,” Causeacon participant, Ashley Long, said.
Causeacon event coordinators told us they will definitely be having another one next year.
