HNICon is a content creator, anime, gaming and comic book convention that started as a suggestion from the Head Nerds In Charge fan base community. What began as a passing proposition has been brought to full fruition in an effort to support creatives, content creators and like-minded individuals to celebrate multiple interests including pop culture, comics, art, cosplay, music and much more.


As of 2022, HNICon will take place in the Greater Philadelphia area and always on Juneteeth weekend. Juneteenth serves as a fitting back drop for HNICon as African Americans seek to evolve and celebrate our independence.   

HNICon provides amazing entertainment for you all weekend long, with yearly themes (this year its AFRO-FUTURISM), engaging panels, memorable meet & greets, and invigorating concerts. HNICon tries to embody the cookout and family reunion feel we all long for when engaging with our community. 

At HNICon, it doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a rabid fan, at HNICon you will be accepted as you are! With guests ranging from leaders in the culture, celebrities, and content creators, Our convention is a hub for networking, growth, education and community. 

The Head Nerds In Charge mission statement is the promotion and proliferation of dope black and POC creatives. Increasing representation that reflects our culture and values in main-stream media. By any means necessary.
