Dokidokon 2024 - Theme:Isekai
Dokidokon is 'A Convention With Heart'. It's our motto for a reason, and for the past 5 years we've put our love and passion into hosting this convention every July!
Doki is primarily an anime and gaming convention which takes place in Kalamazoo Michigan over the summer. We do welcome cosplay and fandoms outside of anime and gaming such as those in the furry community, Lolita community, comic cons, and more!
At Doki you can expect a wide range of events planned over the course of a weekend. We have panels, concerts, workshop events, a vendor room for you
to spend way too much money in, special guests you can get autographs from,
cosplay gatherings and more!
If you enjoy gaming you can enjoy our very own Tabletop game room and Video game room! If you need a quiet space to retreat and relax in our manga room/quiet room is perfect for this. Don't forget to check out our Discord server located at the bottom of our website to join others in the Dokidokon community online!
Over 2,000 people attend Dokidokon and with your continued support we are growing each year! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much for showering the love back on our staff. We couldn't run this event without you, and we hope to become a convention you look forward to year after year.
Leading up to each convention, we will provide the link to the Dokidokon Official Online Schedule. This will include all Panels, Performances, & Events that take place during the Con.
Once all panel submissions have been accepted and the schedule is complete, we will be highlighting some staff favorite panels that are taking place at this year's con.
We provide a Web-App that can be opened from your mobile device to keep up-to-date on the latest changes to events and panels! It's also a great way to check what's taking place if you're looking for things to do!
Our Team Captains put together a Scavenger Hunt using the GooseChase app that you and your Team can participate in! Getting photos of as many objectives as you can will reward you with points for your team!
