Vermont is getting a horror convention

Vermont is getting *another* convention. Moulton Conventions, which is responsible for Vermont Comic Con and Green Mountain Comic Expo, is adding a new show to their roster: VT Horror.

The company launched a Facebook page and website for the event, which will take place at the Barre Civic Center at some point — the site only says that it’s coming soon. The organizers have been working to narrow in on several genre-specific shows this year. It’s a huge change for the state, which has seen an explosion in similar events in recent years.

At this point, we can’t help but wonder if the company is over-leveraging itself when it comes to putting together “geek” style events: it seems as though these shows will be coming quarterly, which gives plenty of options for fans, but will leave people fatigued after a while. The novelty of Vermont Comic Con certainly feels as though it’s worn off, but an impending move to Barre might change that up a bit.
