About ColossalCon;
Colossalcon is a Japanese animation convention held in Northern Ohio during the beginning of June each year, and prides itself with being the region’s kick-off to the start of summer vacation. Our location, the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Sandusky, Ohio, is a unique location, which offers a large convention center, plenty of accommodations and dining options, and the largest indoor waterpark in the country. Only minutes away from Cedar Point, Mills Creek Golf Course and historic downtown Sandusky, as well as an easy drive to Put-in-Bay and downtown Cleveland, Colossalcon is a premier beginning of summer destination.

Each year, we bring out notable voice actors and industry guests to be a part of our convention, with programming which features them throughout the weekend, as well as autograph sessions which are free to our attendees. In past years we have brought out such guests as Wendee Lee, Michael Coleman, Amy Tipton, Jamie McGonnigal, Christine Auten, Stephanie Sheh, Aaron Dismuke, Caitlin Glass, Vic Mignogna, Michelle Ruff, Melissa Fahn, Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, Chuck Huber, Brad Swaile, Wendy Powell, Chris Cason, Todd Haberkorn, Leah Clark, Christina Vee and J. Michael Taum.

While Colossalcon is a Japanese anime convention, we offer a wide variety of programming options throughout the course of the weekend which include costume contests, four dances, events and discussions featuring anime industry guests, game shows, and a wealth of panels about not only anime, but manga, video games and aspects of Japanese culture as well. We also have a large and spacious Dealer’s Room for all of your anime shopping, an Artist Alley for hand-crafted goods and art, and our own version of a flea market, for people to swap and sell their unused anime merchandise.
