SaikouCon [visit site]

August 18-20, 2017
Holiday Inn Allentown Center City

SaikouCon, which means "best convention", is the first large annual anime convention of Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, boasting a dedicated staff of longtime Japanese anime and manga fans. The convention grew out of Anime Ate My Brain Magazine (relaunching in 2017); the sibling to music focused web magazine, Tastes Like Rock! Music Magazine.

The convention will always feature some of the best live entertainment themed to Japanese culture as well as the best in J-Rock, J-Pop, Nerdcore, and straight up Rock n' Roll musical acts from all over the US and beyond. All of this plus top creators, writers, artists, distributors, industry insiders, English dub and original Japanese voice talent, some of the best cosplay talent, shows, dances; and so much more!
