Sakura-Con Programming features fan-run and industry panels, Club Sakura dances, opening/closing ceremonies, gaming, as well as special performances. The majority of our content comes from our membership; that means fans as such as yourself play a huge role in making Sakura-Con a success. Thank you!
The Sakura-Con ratings system provides an informal unified guide to age ratings for both live events and video programming.
Each year Sakura-con hosts a variety of contests. We accept a wide range of participants, from first time artists to professionals, as long as you're a registered member.
In its humble beginning, Sakura-Con was a small group of fans coming together to share ideas in a local anime store. Fan panels continue the tradition of making friends and cover a wide range of topics.
Come one come all as night falls and the stars come out to play. And so do those steeped in night. The magic and the mystery that night brings causes those to dress in their finest wear and dance away. From stars to the twinkling lights of the city, from the fae to those who still believe. Let them all dance away in a midnight reverie. Please join Sakura-Con as we present ‘Midnight Reverie’, the Masquerade Ball. For the first time, we present a gothic themed ball. We encourage you to wear your best and darkest attire. We look forward to seeing you on Friday evening.
The Masquerade Ball is a family-friendly, formal, social dance. Be sure to dress to impress!
