Information on Tora-Con 2018

Tora-Con [visit site]

Anime Convention

April 14-15, 2018
Rochester Institute of Technology

What does "Tora" mean? The mascot here at RIT is the tiger, and tiger in Japanese is "tora". Put that together with "convention" and you get Tora-Con!

Tora-Con is an annual two-day convention celebrating anime, cosplay, and nerd culture in general. Since we began in 2004, Tora-Con has grown into a major event with thousands of attendees.

Every year we feature iconic anime culture guests from around the world, a packed schedule of panels, contests, major events, and performances as well as a vendors hall filled with amazing artists and dealers of genuine anime merchandise. Enjoy a full weekend of anime themed events, cosplay, games, and convention fun!

We welcome fans old and new, and hope you will join us for the festivities!
