Information on Matsuricon 2014


August 22-24, 2014
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.

In 2014, Matsuricon is set to Rock Columbus!
