NekoCon is an annual fall convention that is held in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The con is mainly focused on anime with some anthropomorphic elements as illustrated by Reiko, its catgirl mascot.
The con features many events such as cosplay contests, karaoke, video rooms to watch non-stop anime, anime music video contests, dances, as well as panels and workshops where attendees can learn new things, consult with others about anime and Japanese culture, and meet and discuss topics with guests. Voice actors, directors, industry producers, and other figures of the entertainment industry make appearances and hold question and answer panels.
Regularly returning guests have included Rosearik Rikki Simons and Tavisha Wolfgarth-Simons of Studio Tavicat and Fred Perry of Antarctic Press.
