Dokidokon 2024 – Theme:Isekai

Dokidokon is ‘A Convention With Heart’. It’s our motto for a reason, and for the past 5 years we’ve put our love and passion into hosting this convention every July!

Doki is primarily an anime and gaming convention which takes place in Kalamazoo Michigan over the summer. We do welcome cosplay and fandoms outside of anime and gaming such as those in the furry community, Lolita community, comic cons, and more!

At Doki you can expect a wide range of events planned over the course of a weekend. We have panels, concerts, workshop events, a vendor room for you to spend way too much money in, special guests you can get autographs from, cosplay gatherings and more!

If you enjoy gaming you can enjoy our very own Tabletop game room and Video game room! If you need a quiet space to retreat and relax in our manga room/quiet room is perfect for this.

Over 2,000 people attend Dokidokon and with your continued support we are growing each year! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much for showering the love back on our staff. We couldn’t run this event without you, and we hope to become a convention you look forward to year after year.
