Nan Desu Kan, Colorado's Premier Anime Convention, is Back for Its 27th Year

Things are Bigger, Better, and Brighter than ever at Nan Desu Kan this Labor Day Weekend from August 30th to September 1st 2024. Located at the beautiful Gaylord Rockies Resort in Aurora, Colorado, NDK brings fans of Japanese Animation and Culture together for its 27th year.

It all starts with our Pre-Convention Night Market on August 29th. Come join the community as we gather under the lantern light for atmospheric shop stalls and our Charity Ball supporting the Maria Droste Counseling Center. Then join our over 9,000 average daily attendees for 3 action packed days of Panels, Cosplay, Models, Art, Community, and Culture. You can hear brilliant discussions at our panels with talented voice actors and members of the wider community. Explore our beautiful Model Show, Car Show, and Art Gallery! Get yourself something wonderful in our massive Exhibitors Hall full of artists and vendors. Then enjoy some Anime with friends on the video screens in our main hall or enjoy some games in either our Tabletop Dojo or our gigantic Arcade, complete with Japanese arcade cabinets and charity Pachinko Parlor! Plus, dances, an onsite Maid Café, Cosplay Competition, Stage Performances and more. So many brilliant events are shining forth at NDK like a lantern in the night! Plus, when it's all done, join us for some of our end of convention activities to help wind down while keeping the wonder of NDK going.

NDK has been growing and expanding since 1997, and the Rocky Mountain Anime Association, the registered 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization that runs NDK, has gathered this community year after year not only to have an amazing time, but to do amazing work for noble causes. This year NDK is supporting Safe House Denver. Safe House Denver assists adults, children, and youth in reclaiming their right to a life free from domestic violence. By providing shelter and counseling to survivors of abuse, working with public and community agencies to improve the way our systems respond to domestic violence, and by offering educational programming to prevent future violence. Since 1977, Safe House Denver has continued to provide full continuum of care to adults, children and youth experiencing domestic violence.
