Anime means Japanese animation, while con is short for convention or event.  Animecon is a weekend long convention concentrating on Anime, Manga as well as other topics associated with Japanese culture. Animecon will be held for the thirteenth time, this time in Jyväskylä. For the fifth time, the organizers are Nekocon ry. 

Our substance free event offers attendees of all ages* lectures, shows and contests. Don't forget our sales tables containing various interesting products from many different companies and crafts enthusiasts! Saturday night is spiced up with two different evening parties, one for adults and another for everyone.

*Some programmes might contain an age limit or suggestion.


Animecon 2016 will be held from 9.-10.7. at Paviljonki in Jyväskylä for the first time. Renovations to the Kuopio Music Centre this summer, as well as the need for a large space for our con are the reason we're moving from Kuopio to Jyväskylä this year. The venue for 2017 has not yet been decided and will remain open for the time being. 


Entry to the event is gained via entry bracelets. More information about the bracelets will be given at our tickets page as well at our social medias Twitter and Facebook during the Spring. The pre-sale price for a bracelet is 20€.
