About NekoCon

:spotlight-left::icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz:NekoCon:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz::spotlight-right:


We're a convention held in VA the first weekend of November at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia. We were founded in 1998, and continually growing each year.

We hold events that include a cosplay contest/show, karaoke, an anime themed LARP, video rooms to watch non-stop anime, anime music video (AMV) contest, dances, as well as panels and workshops where attendees can learn new things, consult with others about anime and Japanese culture, and meet and discuss topics with guests. We've also had Voice actors, directors, industry producers, and other figures of the anime entertainment industry make appearances at our wonderful convention.

Be sure to check out our site on all the up-to-date info www.nekocon.com/

Hello kitties and fire chickies, everything is going well and now that RoFcon is over I thought I'd give ya'll a bit of an update:

First of NekoCon 19 will be Nov (3rd for prereg) 4th through the 6th 2016 with our theme being RPG~
Right now we have 2 awesome guests confirmed, Cherami Leigh and Bryce Papenbrook
If you are planning on coming down and are doing traveling I highly suggest booking a room as soon as possible because rooms are selling out quick, if you need more info of hotels please visit here www.nekocon.com/location/hotel…

Now for some post RoFcon/FursonaCon updates~
This was the first year for RoFcon being held at the Hampton Convention center and the turnout was amazing! Thankies to all you fire chickies and Furries who came out to support these 2 wonderful cons, we know there are always good and bad things and if you have any feedback, questions, or concerns please email us at info@rofcon.com
If any videos are made I shall attempt to do an update for them~

I feel that if you were to submit a journal you could reach a wider amount of people. Just make sure to put it in the right folder~! ( Various Nekocon goer journal blog entries )
