Information on Matsuricon 2015


August 14-16, 2015
Hyatt Regency Columbus

Matsuricon is an annual Japanese pop-culture event that focuses primarily on Japanese animation (known as "anime"), manga (Japanese graphic novels), and video games. We also showcase both American and Japanese popular culture, due to the natural overlap of fandom from both genres. Because of our "family friendly" image, our mascots are a "traditional" Japanese family consisting of a father, a mother, a son, a daughter, and a dog. Matsuricon's goal is to promote the cultural awareness of Japanese pop-culture through related events, special guest speakers and cultural presentations. For 2015, We are going back to our roots and going Back to the Festival!
