Sabaku Con was created to help build the Anime fan community in Albuquerque. It is ran by Monkey Paw Entertainment, which also owns and operates Saboten Con, Con-Nichiwa, Kikori Con and Arizona Fur Con in Arizona. We have strong connections into the Anime industry which allows us to bring in top entertainment and events that people want to see and be a part of.

Our goal is to build a strong local fan based convention that is ran by and for the people of Albuquerque. To do this we will bring key our senior staff in for the convention and train up local Albuquerque staff so that, in future years, the local staff will be the primary people in charge and the senior staff will be used as mentors only. This will allow us to put on a top-notch event while helping build up our local staff. We also want to work in a symbiotic relationship with other events that are held in the surrounding Albuquerque area so that we do not impact any other events, but instead help grow a stronger community.

We are always looking for suggestions or help. If you would like to contact us use our contact page and let us know your ideas. We are also looking for volunteers, so please check out or volunteer page as we have several staff positions still open for 2015.

Thank you,

Greg "Sheb" Fennell
