Utah’s latest and greatest gaming convention, Salt Fest, returns for its second year on May 17th to the 18th.

Currently confirmed as a guest is voice actor Chris Rager. Rager is known for portraying Mr. Hercule from the hit anime Dragon Ball Z and Mr. Torque from Borderlands 2.

In its inaugural year Salt Fest featured live streamed tournaments featuring fighting game champion Justin Wong and personalities Brett Young and Alex Jebailey. Voice actors Quinton Flynn of Kingdom Hearts fame and D.C. Douglas of Resident Evil fame were convention guests as well.

Salt Fest is not just a tournament series as it is a Gaming Convention for the general audience. Last year Salt Fest featured gaming and nerd panels, general console and PC play rooms, arcades and live DJs.

Salt Fest will be hosted at the University of Utah as it was last year at the Ray Olpin University Union Building. The Union building is located at 200 south Central Campus Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112.

Pricing for the convention is $20 for the remainder of December. Pricing increases to $25 during January and $30 for February until the day of the convention.
