Ohayocon is a three day anime convention held during January/February in Columbus, Ohio at the Hyatt Regency Columbus and Columbus Convention Center. Ohayocon's name is from the similarity between "Ohio", the convention's location, and Ohayou (おはよう?), which in the Japanese language means "Good morning".
The convention typically offers an AMV contest, Artists Alley, costume contests, Dealer’s Room, formal ball, masquerade, musical events, panel discussions, rave, table-top games, and video gaming.
In 2007 the Midwest premier of Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles occurred at the Arena Grand Theatre during Ohayocon. In 2010 crowding was a problem during the rave due to space issues. The convention shared the Columbus Convention Center with other events and only used about an fourth of the available space. The conventions dance was moved to the convention center ballroom in 2012 to alleviate crowding issues. Ohayocon began using wristbands instead of badges to control unpaid attendance in 2014. During Ohayocon 2015, a transgender teen disappeared during the rave on Saturday night. The teen was attempting to run away and was later found safe in downtown Columbus on Tuesday.
