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!

Educational Discount Program

Because established organizations, such as school groups, nonprofit organizations, and library-sponsored anime-clubs may have special needs, this year Naka-Kon has instituted an Educational Discount Program for these types of groups.

  1. Qualifying clubs and organizations may request to pay for registration by check or money order.
  2. Naka-Kon will bundle badges for clubs and organizations to be picked up by a sponsor or club officer.
  3. The group discount rate is set at $40 per membership and will be available until March 11, 2020.

Request Approval for Discount Program

To request approval to register as a formal group or organization, you must complete the Approval Request Form We reserve the right to request additional documentation, and to decline requests if groups do not meet the guidelines.

Payments and Registration

Requests for payment by check or money order must be made BEFORE members are registered online. When payment is received, leaders for groups approved as established organizations will be contacted by Naka-Kon Registration Staff and provided a registration code. This code will be entered on the Eventbrite online registration form.

To register group members, group leaders will be sent a link to a special registration form (not the standard Naka-Kon registration form). The form will ask for specific information including the contact information for each member of the group.

As with all group registrations, the group must have seven or more attendees, ages 13 and older, and all members of the group must be registered online at the same time.
