Otakuthon 2019 Montreal
August 16-18, Palais des congres de Montreal
Otakuthon is an event that celebrates the cultural phenomenon known as anime (Japanese animation) and manga. Since 2008, the event has been held every summer at the Palais des congrès.
The convention remains the second largest anime event in Canada. Proud of its Quebec origins, Otakuthon strives to be a fully bilingual convention (French and English) since its beginnings.
Since its first edition in 2006, Otakuthon has attracted thousands of participants from Quebec and abroad as well as high profile guests, artists and exhibitors from all corners of the world.
Every summer, the convention offers a wide range of activities from video gaming to the ever popular Masquerade (costume skit show).
Otakuthon has become an opportunity for attendees to enjoy and learn about our passion for Japanese culture, both modern and traditional.
