About Us

Department Heads 2010

NDK started in 1995 as a small anime festival at the Tivoli Student Union on the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver.  Since then, we have grown to the largest convention in 13 surrounding states, excluding Texas.  We pride ourselves on offering a small-convention atmosphere with excellent programming, cultural material, and appearances from our wonderful Guests of Honor.
