Welcome to J1-Con – once known as Philadelphia’s #1 ANIME convention has moved to Atlantic City! Are you a fan of animation, cosplay, gaming (tabletop, card and console), artists, vendors, panels, and live music? You’ve come to the right convention! You can enjoy all of that here, for a GREAT PRICE!

J1-Con was created in 2012, with the hopes of bringing ANIME culture together in a MAJOR city like Philadelphia.  J1-Con was also NOMINATED for “Event of the Year” at the Philly Geek Awards in 2015. In 2016 CBSPHILLY named J1-Con “One of the Five Most Talked About Conventions of the Summer” (comparing it to the Democratic National Convention).
