Con-Nichiwa is an annual anime convention held during April at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tucson - Reid Park in Tucson, Arizona.


The convention typically offers a cosplay cafe, cosplay parade, J-Fashion show, maid cafe, masquerade, panels, and vendors.


The convention moved from the Holiday Inn Palo Verde to the Tucson Convention Center in 2014 due to growth. Con-Nichiwa shared the Tucson Convention Center with a Bernie Sanders 2016 election campaign event. Con-Nichiwa 2020 was moved from June to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but was later cancelled.
