The staff of the Otakon convention confirmed on Friday that the in-person Otakon 2021 event will require masks in most settings, but will not require proof of vaccinations for attendees.
Otakorp will host the event on August 6-8 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. The staff said that Otakon will be the “first major convention event to be held as D.C. reopens.”
Otakon held the Otakon Online virtual event on August 1.
The staff stated other possible changes may include shortened hours, and some high-traffic events such as the Otakon Dance might not be held.
