About this guide
For the first time in NDK history, we're sadly going to hit the attendance cap today. You can still pick up pre-reg badges, and we will still sell one-day badges for tomorrow. But as of now, Saturday at NDK 2012 is sold out.
Welcome to our mobile guide for NDK, Colorado's premier anime convention. Celebrating our Sweet 16!
We're an all-ages convention dedicated to furthering Japanese art, animation and culture and providing a safe, happy, and welcoming environment to every anime fan. We have an attendance cap of 7,500 per day and highly recommend pre-registration.
The Rocky Mountain Anime Association, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, sponsors NDK at the Marriott Denver Tech Center and NDK NYE, the New Year's Eve costume ball, at the Denver Renaissance Hotel.
