We are a fandom oriented convention focusing on Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming, and Anime. Our goal is to bring the very best of what these cultures have to offer to Northwest Arkansas to bring the local fandom communities together and provide the very best in entertainment for our attendees while raising money for our charity of choice. This year’s charity is the NorthWest Arkansas Rape Crisis Center. Northwest Arkansas Rape Crisis Center provides a safe haven of healing and hope to those affected by sexual violence and to constantly work towards a safer future for all through education and awareness. Since 1982, our mission-driven work has offered free, comprehensive support to survivors of sexual assault while actively addressing the individual and community hurt caused by those who perpetrate.

Hoshicon is a Japanese Animation and Culture convention that celebrates all nerd fandoms in the area of Winston - Salem, NC. Our main goal is to bring awareness and appreciation of Asian culture in our area by hosting interactive events for all ages and cultures. With the help of our community, we hope to expand the growth of the Japanese, Asian, and pop culture industries in our area. This is a growing industry in our country, and we are hoping we can make North Carolina and the south eastern USA one of the leading areas. We hope with our event that we can possibly provide a way to network, conduct business, and also make lifetime friends.

Matsuricon is an annual Japanese pop-culture event that focuses primarily on Japanese animation (known as anime), manga (Japanese graphic novels), and video games. We also showcase both American and Japanese popular culture, due to the natural overlap of fandom from both genres. We are considered a family friendly event. Most of our panels are all ages unless otherwise stated. We do showcase certain events that are not appropriate for attendees under the age of 18, and our convention staffers check the IDs of all attendees before they enter these events. Because of our family friendly image, our mascots are a traditional Japanese family consisting of a father, a mother, a son, a daughter, and a dog. Matsuricon’s goal is to promote the cultural awareness of japanese pop-culture through related events, special guest speakers and cultural presentations.
