Born from the mini convention Tekko ½ in 2009, the KuroKiiro Festival is not your typical anime event. While we have cosplay, video screenings, and fandom panels, we don’t think of ourselves as a convention.
So what exactly is KKF?
KKF is a festival that strives to incorporate Japanese pop culture with traditional culture. It’s a place where you can learn a new skill through hands-on workshops, enjoy traditional performances, attend a lecture that may make you see your favorite anime in a whole new way, watch anything from the newest anime to classic Japanese cinema, play a carnival game, or eat at a maid cafe. And it’s all brought to you by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society, the organization responsible for Tekko each spring.
The Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society is also proud to announce the new location of the KuroKiiro Festival. After a long search for a new home we have partnered with California University of Pennsylvania. Their state of the art Convocation Center provides us a facility that mixes the feel and setting of a school festival with the size and flexibility of a convention center. We hope you enjoy this new setting, as well as support us as we grow this event into the festival you asked for.
Please support us by pre-registering for this event as well as visiting the California University of Pennsylvania website.
