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!

Group Registrations

Please note our policies regarding group registrations!

There are two types of groups eligible to receive registration discounts.

"Regular" Group Registrations

Group Weekend Membership badges are for informal groups of seven or more attendees, ages 13 and older. This membership grants access all three days to the Vendors Room, panels, workshops and more! This does not include ticketed events (i.e. Charity Ball, Maid Cafe, Lolita Tea, etc.).

Each group member must pick up their own individual badge using the regular Will Call line. Naka-Kon will not bundle badges for informal group registrations (See Approved Clubs & Organizations below).

  • When completing the online registration form, group leaders must provide valid, working email addresses for each member of the group so that each individual can receive their Eventbrite receipt. Registration staff must see this receipt in order to verify registrations and check-in attendees.
  • If the group leader uses a single email address for all members of the group, it is the leader's responsibility to make sure each member has their individual Eventbrite registration receipt for check-in.
  • All members of the group must be included at the time of the online badge purchase. We can not add members later.

Educational Discount Program

Approved Clubs & Organizations

Because established organizations, such as school groups, nonprofit organizations, library-sponsored anime-clubs, or other qualifying organizations may have special needs, this year Naka-Kon has instituted an Educational Discount Program for these types of groups. Please our Educational Discount Page for more information.
