Participants can truly be their authentic selves without fear of being judged. Whether a novice, avid fan, black, white, brown, purple or green like Piccolo, everyone is welcome to come out, have fun and simply have a great overall experience. ”
Dream Con was founded in 2017, and was born as a result of a gap that existed in the anime, games and comics convention for people of color. After being continually rejected by major conventions, University of North Texas graduates Mark Phillips and the RDC World1 Team decided to turn their obstacle into an opportunity by using their unique gifts and talents to create their own convention. Their vision was to create an inclusive event where anime, game and cartoon lovers, like them, could come together in an inviting and inclusive environment to connect, network and transform their dreams into reality. Today, the convention, along with their online social media platforms, has attracted people from all over the world.
Dream Con is supported by event sponsors: Pizza Hut, House of Highlights, Bud Light Next, YaBoyRoshi, Viz Media, Texas Kaizoku, Urban Anime Lounge, Otaku Lamps, Geek E Love, Gel Blasters, Right Stuf, Air Optix Color Contacts, D -Spirits , Liquid Death, Real Ninja Reviews, Real Deal Designs and LAN Party.
The Dream Con event will take place at the Esport Stadium Arlington located at 1200 Ballpark Way, Arlington, Texas, 76011. In these unique times, health and safety continue to be a high priority. To participate in Dream Con, participants must be fully vaccinated or give a negative PCR test 72 hours before the event. Tickets for this year’s event are sold out, but tickets for Dream Con 2023 will be available at the end of July.
