Where did the name Dokidokon come from?
Our convention name derives from the Japanese word that refers to the sound of a heart beating, doki doki. We took Doki and added the kon (con). We are a convention with heart!
What type of convention is Doki?
We are primarily an Anime/Gaming convention. We love different fandoms, and welcome those in the Sci-Fi, Movies, Comics, Fursuite, tabletop, LARP, Renaissance and Lolita communities (and many many others)!

Rules and Policies
Harassment & Cosplay is NOT Consent
Dokidokon will not tolerate harassment. Harassment may include, but is not limited to: verbal harassment, hand made or purchased signs, offensive jokes, e-mail ‘jokes’ or statements, pranks, intimidation, contact or physical assaults, or violence.
Dokidokon firmly believes ‘Cosplay is not consent’. Never is it okay to lay hands on a person without their consent. This includes, but is not limited to: Hugging or glomping, placing
hands on a person for photos, taking a photo when the cosplayer say’s ‘no’.
If you experience harassment while in cosplay at Dokidokon we ask you to bring it to the staff’s attention immediately. If you experience another person(s) being harassed we ask you to take a stand with that person, and for the both of you to find a staff member to report said harassment so that we can take care of the situation.
We want everyone to have a fun safe and safe time while at Dokidokon, and although our staff will do everything they can to help provide that, we still need YOUR HELP in reporting any harassment or suspicious behavior.
