Naka-Kon is an annual three-day convention, celebrating anime, manga, cosplay, music, fashion, gaming, and more! Every year, we bring your favorite voice actors, musicians, cosplayers, artists, designers, and industry experts to the Overland Park Convention Center. Catch guest panels and performances, be part of our cosplay competitions, enter contests, and learn about working in the anime, manga, and music industries.

Greetings, Nakama — We hope everyone's holiday season is off to a great start. As we reflect, we are very thankful for all the people involved in making Naka-Kon possible each year and the support to celebrate Japanese pop culture and art.

Today, we have an important message that we would like to share with everyone. To be candid, the permanent closure of Naka-Kon is a real possibility that we are facing.

Hello everyone, we apologize for the belated post. We want to take this time to express our gratitude to everyone who was part of Naka-Kon 2021. When we canceled Naka-Kon 2020 and postponed Naka-Kon 2021 from March to September, we were very close to ceasing operations. Attendees, vendors, artists, donors, sponsors, convention center staff, the City of Overland Park, and all the hard-working volunteers – you were all vital in helping this convention survive and enabling us to host Naka-Kon 2021.

Nakama, as previously mentioned, this year we will be sharing our space with a number of other groups, so while we encourage you to enjoy the convention, please be respectful of the other non-convention attendees who will be using some of our usual programming and lounge space.

-Naka-Kon only has rights to the convention center side, so other events happening in the Sheraron Hotel are unaffiliated with Naka-Kon. These groups have the rights to the spaces they are using.

This year we are going digital with the program book. That's right it'll be right on your phone or tablet. And what's even cooler is you can install a version to your device and it'll be accessible even without internet access!

We at Naka-Kon are always watching for the latest guidance to keep all of our attendees safe. With the rise of the vaccine-resistant and more contagious Delta and Lambda variants of COVID-19, we are making preparations in anticipation of more stringent regulations from the county, state, or federal governments.
