(July 24 – 26 ’15) Otakon 2015, Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland


You’ve Been Cordially Invited to Join Us for Otakon 2015!

Otakon 2015 is on its way, and the event is shaping up to be everything we’ve been wishing for. Our fairy godmothers have been waving their wands non-stop to conjure up amazing guests, magical concerts, and enough panels and workshops to make any otaku’s dream come true.

Otakon is the convention of the otaku generation: by fans, for fans, and since 1999 we’ve reigned over much of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor with a three day event celebrating the diverse pop culture that has given us everything from Attack on Titan to Yu Yu Hakusho, from Hidden Fortress to Howl’s Moving Castle.

We hope you can join us in Baltimore for our 22nd Otakon this July 24-26, 2015!
