About NekoCon


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

Sorry for not doing a pre-con update, I found a stash of catnip, fell down a rabbit hole, and have been trapped for quite some time, if it weren't for those passing cosplayers who'd know when I'd be back...

Anywho, did everyone have a wonderful time this year in the wonderfully wonderland themed NekoCon? Anyone get to take a break with the wonderful ladies from the Lovely Heart Maid Cafe? How many of you got to dance at the awesome Friday/Saturday dances? Anybody get to meet the voice actor/actress of their dreams?
Please feel free to let us know what your favorite things about this year was~

If you have any questions, high praise, critiques, or concerns please do not hesitate to inform us at

Be prepared to take a magical carpet ride back next year for NekoCon 18 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center, November 6-8, 2015~ We hope to see you again~

Official numbers and video's from our video providers will be added soon~
