Welcome to AVCon!
AVCon 2021 returns better than ever. AVCon is an annual Anime & Video Games Festival held in Adelaide. AVCon brings the best of anime and video gaming to Adelaide. The event has been held annually in July since 2002. A dedicated team of volunteers manages it through the not-for-profit organisation Team AVCon Incorporated. The convention focuses on community and provides a space for local, interstate, international exhibitors, developers, and artists to share their content and passion. AVCon hosts many different events and activities throughout the weekend. Including independent video game developer spaces, guest signings and panels, community and industry-led panels and workshops, and video game and tabletop game free play and tournaments, to name a few.
No matter what you’re interested in — from cosplay to gaming to industry and everything in between — we’ve got something up our sleeve for everyone. These are our big events that return each year, like the auction, After Dark 18+, our cosplay parade and competition, quiz night and many more!
Every year, we have numerous activities running all around the clock during the weekend in between big events and panels. Our exhibitor and artist alley makes a return and will be open all festival weekend long. Check out our video gaming and tabletop areas. For more information, click below!
The AVCon weekend is full of different tournaments and competitions to suit nearly all skill levels and interests, from cosplay and fashion, creative skills, and all sorts of gaming.

Welcome Here @ AVCon
Team AVCon has joined up with the Welcome Here project to demonstrate that at AVCon, we strive to welcome and celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) communities. Many of our own AVCon committee and elect identify as LGBTIQ+, and so do some of our amazing guests and attendees! AVCon will always support the community to make sure they feel welcomed at our event by creating an inclusive space that strives for everyone to feel included, safe and respected.
AVCon would not exist without the help we continue to receive from our generous sponsors. To see a list of all the sponsors for AVCon 2021, check out the Sponsors page.
