Okashicon - 2024!

Hey everyone, exciting news! Okashicon is teaming up with San Japan! 🎉

What’s the scoop? We’re thrilled to be bringing our J-Fashion programming to San Japan. Get ready for Designers, Make and Take sessions, Fashion shows, and, of course, our J-fashion Mixer/Tea Party! ☕️

But wait, does this mean San Japan bought out Okashicon? Nope! We’re still proudly independent. As a non-profit, we’ll keep hosting tea parties, markets, workshops, and fundraisers across Texas.

Will there be a standalone Okashicon event this year? Given our commitment to integrating our programming with San Japan, we’ve decided not to host our independent three-day convention. Additionally, with the rising costs of event space in Austin, it’s become increasingly challenging.

But how do you attend Okashicon at San Japan? Easy peasy! Just grab yourself a San Japan badge, and you’re in for all the Okashicon goodness!

Thanks for all your support as we embark on this new adventure. Can’t wait to see you in San Antonio, Texas! 🌟

``Definitely a unique, fun experience I haven't experienced at any other convention. I really enjoyed that a real Japanese-pop culture experience could be brought closer to home.`` ~Sephi Hakubi

``This was a fun experience!!! The people that run this convention genuinely care about the attendees. After I did my panel on how to cope with anxiety at conventions one of the convention organizers pulled me aside to ask how to implement and better help people with anxiety. If you're looking for a con that actually cares and is centered around the experience of the attendees, Okashicon is your place``

``Last year was my first year at Okashicon as an artist, but I'll definitely be back! The atmosphere was fun and positive. The volunteers checked up on us often to make sure we had everything we needed. After working my table for the day, I had the best time hanging out in the game room and maid cafe. There's really something for everyone at Okashicon!``
