Greetings Daisho Fans,
Happy Thanksgiving. Usually, this holiday follows our favorite weekend of the year. It’s time spent recovering and recounting memories from the weekend and looking forward to the next year to come.
Last weekend should have been the 13th anniversary of Daisho Con. Sadly, the Kalahari halls were unusually empty of fans, cosplayers, vendors and guests.
We wish we had good news but after almost two years since having to pause business because of the pandemic, we are announcing that Daisho Con will not be reopening its doors in the future.
This was not the outcome anyone wanted, but despite a huge effort that exhausted all potential options, Daisho Con will not be continuing forward.
To our staff and partners, we thank you for your dedicated service to the convention. It couldn’t have succeeded without you.
With 2019 as our last year, we can still find reasons to give thanks. We have countless memories of our friends coming together for our biggest weekend to date. We’ll always have the crowded hallways of the convention center, the giddy excitement of meeting our favorite guests, the ache of our feet from dancing in the rave and the late, late nights when we stayed up too long because we just didn’t want it to end.
Thank you all for so many amazing years.
THE DAISHO CON TEAM
