The Masquerade this year is an all-new experience – maintaining the roots of a theatrical style, interactive, themed dance event, our goal is to transport the patrons of METROCON to a whole other world, and provide an experiential opportunity that is truly immersive and once in a lifetime. The Masquerade takes place on the Friday Evening of METROCON. The show will consist of scenes on stage, in the crowd, and with audience members involved, and the breaks will involve dancing, interactivity, suspense, drama, and a host of ways to meet new friends and truly make your cosplay come alive. The characters from the show will be out on the floor for the duration of the event as well to create unique memories with our fans. Dress code and interactivity details are below. Tickets are ten dollars ($10) online, and twelve dollars ($12) at Registration at the convention.
Our largest room at METROCON, this room hosts our main events such as the Anime Human Chess Match, The Masquerade, and more, as well as our large-format contests like the Costume Contest and Anime Idol. With stadium-style bleachers, a live-feed camera to two 20' screens, and full concert-level lighting and sound, this is the main hub of entertainment at the convention.
