What is OniCon?

Oni-Con is a 3 day anime and Japanese pop-culture convention held in Galveston, Texas. The Oni-Con family is a group of fervent fans who got together to create a show “by fans for fans”. If you would like to learn more about us please explore the website, contact us or go to the About Us section.

When is Oni-Con held and where is it located?

Oni-Con XVI will be held on November 8th – 10th, 2019 The convention takes place in the Galveston Island Convention Center.

Why are you in Galveston?

The short answer is BEACH CON! The long answer would be that Galveston is a great place to hold a convention. Galveston is situated in the right spot to take advantage of the big city benefits that Houston provides while also being able to leave behind the headaches. There are so many places to stay, eat and explore on Galveston Island and you can do this all for a reasonable price. For more information on Galveston please see our Location section.
