Otakon is the annual convention of Otakorp, Inc. members, held in the summer months to celebrate Asian pop culture (anime, manga, music, movies, video games, etc) and its fandom. The event runs from Friday to Sunday and is packed with a schedule that has tons to do.
Since 1999, Otakon has taken place at the Baltimore Convention Center. In 2017, it will make its move to Washington, DC.
Held at the beginning of the year, Otakon Vegas is a brand new event from the people behind Otakon, one of North America's largest celebrations of anime and East Asian popular culture.
We're starting the way Otakon started, as a smaller, cozier, hotel-based convention. Otakon Vegas takes place at the Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino.
Taking place the Thursday before Otakon starts, the Otakon Matsuri is a free event open to the public that kicks off Otakon weekend.
