Masqurade Ball

Complete with decorations and music to set the scene,  Kobe-kon is hosting a formal ball the first night of the convention.  Dress to impress! Bring a mask of your own or, if you don't have one available, there will be a selection available at Everett Anime World. (Masks are not required for attendance - they are just fun!) 


Game Room

Kobe-kon, as a newly blooming convention, really wishes to focus its efforts into connecting with our attendees and meeting their needs as far as events and entertainment goes. With the resources available to us in our first year, we were able to proved a room for gaming - a set up with few arcade styled machines  and various playing consoles; our most popular being the multiplayer games as they gave a better chance for more people to have a turn playing. We also held card tournaments for Pokemon, Yu-gi-oh!, and Magic the Gathering - which ended up being a success in popularity for some due to the prizes at stake. It is our goal to be able to expand on our gaming opportunity through the addition of table top gaming, indie games, and VR games. We want to provide for our attendees, the chance to try new things as well as show off the skills they have honed but have not yet had a chance to show off publicly. As Kobe-kon grows, our goal is to create an atmosphere of family fun and inclusiveness for all in attendance - to ensure that everyone has a chance to find something they love. 

K-Pop Til You Drop Dance

Polish up your danceing shoes and get ready for a night of action! We have a crazy playlist of the most popular artists in k-pop! Don't be afraid to show off your moves! 

Main Stage

We will have a variety of games and shows during the convention that take place right on our main stage. There will be seating available for relaxation and an events coordinator to keep things exciting! Main stage will host the adult and child divisions of the cosplay contests!

Special Guests

Kobe-kon welcomes veterans of the anime industry to Everett! We will have meet-and-greets, autograph sessions, and panels throughout the weekend!
