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

Question about the editing contest. It says that the editing contest has 3 category's but goes back to 2012. Will this be changed earlier on or is this going to be the same for 2013 as 2012?
