Working with the Sheraton Hotel, Overland Park Convention Center, and the City of Overland Park, it was decided to not hold Naka-Kon 2020 the weekend of March 13-15, 2020.

Due to scheduling constraints, we have decided rather than postpone until later to instead cancel Naka-Kon 2020, and concentrate our efforts on developing Naka-Kon 2021. This decision is based on the information we have regarding logistics and availability of our facilities.

This decision was very difficult to make, but we feel is the best course of action for continuing our mission of providing a quality celebration of Japanese popular culture.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact

However, due to the extenuating circumstances presented by the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are waiving our refund policy. We are also providing the option of rolling 2020 Memberships over to the 2021 convention in lieu of a refund. Please complete this form to let us know what you wish to do. If no reply to the form is given by March 27, 2020, then purchased badges will be automatically deferred and valid for Naka-Kon 2021. Badge refunds will start processing shortly but please be aware that due to the number of refunds involved it will likely be a couple weeks before all refunds are processed.

We appreciate your support for Naka-Kon and we will see you in 2021!

At-Convention Badge Sales

How to Pay at the Door

When buying a badge during the convention, you may pay for your badge by cash or credit card. No personal checks can be accepted. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. Look for the "Badge Sales" line in the Registration area.

Please remember, you will also be able to purchase your badge on our Eventbrite page during the convention. Pre-purchasing  your badge will shorten how much time you must spend in line, so we recommend that those who plan to pay by credit card take advantage of this feature. If you pay for your badge online, look for the "Will Call" line in the Registration area.

Lost Badges

Your badge is valuable and it is your responsibility to keep it secure. Naka-Kon will not refund or replace badges that are lost or stolen. Attendees who lose their badges must purchase a replacement badge to re-enter the convention.

Ticketed Events

Some activities such as the Maid Cafe and Formal Gala are not included in the price of convention badges, and tickets for these events must be purchased separately.
