Last year's Sakura-Con took place at the Seattle Convention Center on April 15-17, 2022. Sakura-Con 2020 and 2021 were canceled due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Asia Northwest Cultural Education Association hosts Sakura-Con in Seattle annually. It describes the convention as "the oldest and most well attended anime convention in the Pacific Northwest." The convention started in 1998.
