Con-G is a non-profit fan-run multigenre convention, held in February in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The convention was originally created as a Japanese anime convention[1] but now covers many other aspects of geek culture, such as Steampunk, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming etc. The name Con-G comes from a combination of the words "Convention Guelph" and is a play on words on the Japanese writing system kanji[2].

Con-G was founded in late 2008 and ran its first convention in February 2009.
