Youmacon 2014 is Go!
Youmacon is not only Detroit's first and only Anime Convention, it's also one of the fastest growing fan conventions in the country! Last year over 14,000 individuals joined us in downtown Detroit to enjoy our 24 hour programming, great industry guests, cosplay contests, and our epic video game room.
After a brief hiatus on updates while we ran our new sister event, the Midwest Media Expo, the Youmacon crew is back in action, ready to bring you our best event yet as we celebrate our tenth year! Youmacon X will be held at the newly renovated Cobo Center, as well as the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.
