Kakkoi|con


August 1-3, 2008
Sheraton Bloomington
Minneapolis, MN

Information:
Kakkoi|con is an exciting convention that is scheduled to take place August 1st through the 3rd of 2008 in Minneapolis, MN. This is an event that people of all ages may attend, however some of the events scheduled will have an age restriction due to strong language, adult content, and there will be ID checks to prevent minors from attending.

Kakkoi|con, is an event that is meant to reach beyond the scope of just Japanese animation to include Japanese music, fashion, style, and cultural aspects. We feel that by doing this we can provide a greater appreciation of Japanese Society. However, anime will still be the core of what Kakkoi|con is about.
