Can you believe Fall Kraken Con 2014 happened just a week ago? With 10 amazing guests, over 50 panels, a slew of workshops, and some awesome Kraken Con programming firsts like a Vocaloid Concert, Talent Show and Eric Stuart’s acoustic performance we hope everyone had as much fun as we did!

Our final attendance count was 2728 unique attendees and 4143 turnstile attendees. This was a 60% increase in attendees from April! If you attended we’d love to hear your feedback so head on over to our form to leave your comments!

For those of you who had your photos taken in our photo studio by OscarC Photography you can view the full size pictures here!

So what about next year? We have dates reserved but the space footprint isn’t as ideal (especially with the increased attendance!) so we’re currently working with the Oakland Convention Center to see if we can get something even better lined up! Our theme for next Spring Kraken Con 2015 is camping and the great outdoors so expect a lot of fun focusing on that. Plus, our website will be overhauled in a few weeks so stay tuned for more information!
