Not only are we chilling at Acen with all of our conswap friends this weekend but we’re also opening up applications to be part of our vendors hall! We’re always looking for fresh, exciting, reputable vendors to join our star-studded roster. If that sounds like you take a trip to the application form today!
The Ohayocon Road Team is heading to Acen this weekend to kick off this year’s pre-reg extravaganza! Yeah, you read that right! This year we’re not opening the flood gates in September like years before, this year we’re opening them in May! Betcha didn’t see that one coming, did you? You can invest in your 2019 weekend pass in person there or wait for the 21st when we’ll be opening sales online.
Head over to the admission and pricing page to see the deets and check out the super-cute camp-flavored graphic our art team whipped up for you guys!
Oh, and you thought we would open registration without dangling something shiny in front of your face? Think again; we’ve got six whole shiny things to dangle, baby! The first batch of Ohayocon 2019 guests is ready to view! We’re bringing back fan favorites and adding some impressive new names to the list.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We can’t say it enough.
Without you, this convention and online community could not possibly exist, and we owe you a big vote of thanks. Here’s some updates about the future:
- If you would like to enter for a chance to win a free badge for next year, you can take our attendee survey and tell us your thoughts!
- Our theme for next year is “Camp Ohayocon,” and we hope to see you there, cadets!
- Technically our convention year ends Jan. 31, but since it is so close to that date, our customer service channels will remain active through Feb. 15, then revert to weekly checks during our long off-season.
See you next year!

This Feature Friday let’s all give a warm welcome to MADDØG, the inspiring DJ who wields her craft as a honed blade to cut through the hyper-masculine culture enshrining the music genre she loves! This warrior for EDM Equality can be found performing almost at Bars, Clubs and Events in Indiana and she’s bringing her talents to Ohio for our signature nighttime event, Club Ohayocon!
Is it another Feature Friday already? Please don’t answer that, it’s really more of a rhetorical question — OF COURSE it is!

It’s Feature Friday, and we are ecstatic to let you know we asked voice actor and director Jamie Marchi to visit us in January, and she said yes!

Eternal Summer, and the narrator in Hetalia: Axis Powers. Marchi also has credits in a number of other anime, including Witchblade, Baka and Test, Spice and Wolf, Sgt. Frog, Rosario + Vampire, Romeo X Juliet, and several more.
