Ushicon was an annual anime convention that was held in Austin, Texas from 2002 to 2006. The convention was traditionally held in late January. On February 10, 2006, a notice on the Ushicon website indicated that the convention was ceasing operations due to changes in anime fandom.

A successor event, Chibi Ushicon, is scheduled to be held January 29-31, 2010, in the Austin suburb of Round Rock, Texas.[1]
