We are where East kollides with West. An animation convention that has something for every fandom!
Kollision Con provides individuals easy access to a wide assortment of otherwise unavailable hobbies. From Anime to Cosplay, Comics to live music, and a chance to meet some of your heroes.
Kollision allows people of all ages to congregate in a friendly, welcoming, social environment. In addition to our unique vendors and great atmosphere, we also greatly encourage Cosplay. Cosplay, short for “Costume Play”, it is where an individual creates and dons a costume that resembles a character they like or wish to portray.
Kollision holds an annual masquerade & skit contest where people can show off their hard work, talent, and craftsmanship skills. Both events are evaluated by a panel of in-the-industry professionals. The event concludes with the presentation of trophies, awards, & prizes.
In addition to the masquerade, Kollision features a myriad of events: Instructional panels & workshops that offer insight and training, which provide attendees a chance to improve and hone their skills. Gaming events & tournaments featuring today’s current chart-toppers, e-sport titles, and classic gaming in a setting where individuals are able to create, interact, and compete.
Exhibition Hall where artists and vendors show and sell their wares. Live concerts featuring musical guests specially brought in. Dances highlighting local and abroad DJ talent, accompanied by submersive sound and laser lighting systems. Finally, the Formal Ball, a formal fancy-dress ballroom event, full with traditional dance instructors.
Kollision provides an opportunity for individuals, from children to adults, a chance at improving their social skills, independent thinking, public speaking, and their engineering skills.
