who are we?

We are ASAHi Con! Our mission is to bring anime, Japanese culture, and the convention experience to the fans of Antioch, California. We are a small con with about ten years of history, and we don't plan on getting too large. We want to open the door to people and show them how amazingly awesome conventions are! All our staff is apart of the ASAHi Club at Antioch High school, which means we have fresh staff members each year. Our graduates are trained in everything needed to run and plan a convention. 

when is ASAHicon?

ASAHiCon will be held on April 18, 2020 from 10am to 6pm!
