Hey Nakama,

We’ve been waiting to get all our foxes in a row before making our announcements, so we have a BUNCH of items to cover with you today. Please read everything closely!

First off: Our COVID-19 Protocols (in their current form)

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.
