Remember the Sencha gatherings from back in the day? If so then you will be excited to learn that they are returning for the first time in 2023.
Sencha Pokémon Cosplay Gathering! will be the first such gathering to take place in almost 10 years. The event will take place at the Santa Clara Central Park (located at 909 Kiely Blvd) on February 19, 2023 from Noon to 6 pm.
The event is free and guests are expected to follow three important rules. No steel or gun props of any kind will be allowed (for obvious safety reasons). Cosplayers are also encouraged to dress appropriately due to the public setting of the event. There will be zero tolerance for any action that will create a negative environment. Finally, no smoking or consumption of alcohol is allowed.
Snacks and drinks will be served while several Pokemon themed activities will be organized. Additional information about the event will be announced in the coming months.
Cosplay gatherings are special events where local cosplayers can meet up for a day of fun. They are also highlights of fan conventions as participants gather based on their favorite series.
