After Dark

The party doesn’t stop when the Show Floor closes! There’s a ton left to do at C2E2 after the lights go down. Whether you want to sing your heart out at our late-night karaoke or just play some games and grab a drink with friends, the party doesn't stop after dark. Want to geek out over, anime, comic books, or cosplay? We got it all! Check out what we have planned below and stay tuned for more events as we get closer to the show! 

Did we mention there's drinks?

After Parties

 Keep the party going with after parties happening both Friday and Saturday night. Get a closer look at some of the incredible cosplayers immediately following Saturday’s Cosplay Competition at C2E2’s annual Cosplay After Party. There will be drinks, dancing and more. We’ve got the perfect way to cap off a day at C2E2! 

City Pop DJ Nights – Van Paugam is a vinyl DJ and designer specializing in 70’s and 80’s Japanese City Pop. His aesthetics often play with nostalgia as an element to fuse retro-futurism with neo-vintage moods. He has DJ’d in Miami, Brooklyn, Paris, Tokyo, and more! Van will be performing live in S401 on Saturday playing the greatest in City Pop, J-Pop and Lofi Hip Hop!

Late Night Gaming

Roll for initiative. Like to get together with friends and mash some buttons? Think board games are hardly ever boring? Well, we've got you covered. This year we have a D&D room running games until midnight in S501!. Grab some friends and get ready to play.  


Take the stage and the mic to belt out your favorite tunes in style at Late Night Karaoke. Hop on the mic and sing your heart out or just sit back and enjoy the performances. Either way, it’s going to be a great time.

After Dark Panels

We didn’t just stop at parties, gaming and screenings. C2E2 late night is also packed with panel programming (say that five times fast). Comics, cosplay, anime and more – and even a few panels we wouldn’t dare schedule during the day.
