Hurricane Harvey

If you are in the path of Hurricane Harvey or an area of flooding, please stay safe and be aware of your surroundings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

At this time we are not aware of any damage to the Galveston Island Convention Center. We will continue to work closely with the convention center and hotels to ensure that Oni-Con will happen as planned.
