Naka-Kon's annual summer picnic is back! Join us for Re-Kon 2016, July 31 at Shawnee Mission Park (Shelter 8). Come catch up with all your friends from Naka, and enjoy some music, food, and water balloon wars!
As in previous years, we'll be manning the grills. $5 will get you your choice of 2 grill items as well as 2 drinks (Gatorade or soda). Water free for all. Feel free to bring a snack to share!
You are welcome to cosplay, but please remember, this is July in Kansas. Wear something comfortable and breathable, and please bring a change of clothing if at all possible. Be smart!
Please RSVP to this event so we can get a proper headcount. We'll see you there! (Pssst! Don't forget the water balloons.)
Naka-Kon is an annual 3-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.
We’re thrilled to provide a truly Japanese experience, including not just anime, manga, and cosplay, but also culture. Naka-Kon brings Japan to the Midwest in an authentic way, from panels about language, food, and the symbolism behind your favorite stories to saké tastings and cultural festivals. We also host a variety of fan panels, so you can celebrate the fandoms you love with people just like you!
Each year also brings an interactive story event where you, the attendees, play a role. Don’t miss out on a ton of fun with special events and live performances!
