What is Hamacon?
Hamacon stands for "Huntsville & Madison Anime Convention" aka we're the Rocket City's anime con! We run two major events a year, a three day full fledged con in June, and a one day con in November. Either way, we treat you with tons of amazing events and panels, a big ol' gaming area for both video games as well as the tabletop variety, a Dealer's Room, an Artist Alley, Cosplay, and more! Not to mention, we try and sprinkle as many smaller events we can throughout the year as well.
Hamacon's Host Hotel
The official Hamacon hotel this year is the Embassy Suites in beautiful, scenic downtown Huntsville. It's got everything you need. A place to rest your head after a hard day at the con, and to wash up for your next adventure. And when you wake up after getting a great night's rest? Why, there's breakfast in the morning to start your next con day off right! It's hard to find a better hotel than the Embassy Suites.
Things to See & Do!
There are a ton of great things to check out! From the Cosplay and AMV Contest, to great panels, and more! Or may you would enjoy some video games? Maybe some tabletop gaming? We have one of the largest gaming hall areas in the state! But maybe you want to get involved. Interested in submitting you own panels? Panel applications will open soon!
