NärCon is a series of festivals and events taking place in Sweden since 2002, focusing on East Asian pop culture and gaming. Our goal is to give our visitors the feeling that they are visiting an anime festival with live performances, new friends, cosplay and video games. Our newest event, My:NärCon, will take place at Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö, Stockholm on the 3-6th of January where young visitors from all over Sweden and abroad gather together for 4 days of activities, tournaments and live shows which take place during both day and night.
We offer cheap lodging in dormitories where you bring your own sleeping bag and sleep on the floor (these will be sold together with the tickets when they’re released).
If you enjoy cosplay, the Swedish Championships in Cosplay (Cosplay SM) will take place at My:NärCon. We also have our own, open cosplay competition where many cosplayers will show their cosplays and compete in different categories. One of them awarded by you and the rest of the audience!
NärCon has a dedicated security team that will keep you safe during the convention, while our medical team will help you if you encounter any health issues.
If you plan on traveling to Sweden by airplane, you might find it easiest to fly to Arlanda airport, from where you can catch a train or bus to Stockholm. Either by Arlanda Express which takes 20 min to Stockholm Central or by Flygbussarna (Airport Bus). From Stockholm Central Station the local traffic operator, SL, provides options to get to Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö.
