About Zenkaikon Online

Zenkaikon is an annual celebration of anime, comics, games, science fiction, and fandom in Lancaster, PA.  The three day event includes panels, workshops, screenings, cosplay, video gaming, tabletop gaming, LARP, AMVs, dances, vendors, artists, and more!

Want to be a part of the fun and excitement of Zenkaikon but can't be here in person? We're thrilled to announce a new way to access the convention -- online! We’re building on our success with our online-only event in 2021 to bring the Zenkaikon experience to you wherever and whenever you are!

We've partnered with Uscreen to deliver to your device the quality programming content you've come to expect from Zenkaikon. Whether it's your phone, tablet, or computer, you'll now be able to be a part of Zenkaikon wherever you are! Want to watch a panel while relaxing in bed? Great! Maybe when you're on the bus heading to class? Go for it! How about watching an online Zenkaikon panel from the comfort of your Zenkaikon hotel room while the actual Zenkaikon con is still happening? Yes, yes, and yes!

Our current online plan for Zenkaikon is to provide you with  programming in our large Main Events room and two of our large panel rooms. We're also providing for you exclusive online-only panels that can only be accessed through your online access. We plan to expand to even more content in the future as we enter this exciting new form of Zenkaikon!

We've also worked with Uscreen to deliver all our content at the lowest possible cost to you. Your online access will only be $15.00, which comes out to less than five cents a day! For a nickel a day, you'll get to participate in Zenkaikon from anywhere in the world! We've also ensured that you can easily add the Online component to your existing in-person or VIP membership before, during, and after Zenkaikon, so you don't miss out on anything!

Best of all, your online access lasts all year long! You'll be able to access all our content anytime during the year, whenever it's convenient for you! Thanksgiving, Arbor Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, all the days! You decide what to watch and when to watch!

Having Zenkaikon be more accessible to more people is a core principle we on staff believe is fundamental. This project is something many of us have wanted to do for you, the Zenkaikon community, for quite some time, and we're so happy we're able to make this happen for all of you!

With all this great content, what are you waiting for? Sign up for your Online Access and get ready to experience Zenkaikon anywhere, anytime!
