MKO is being renamed/rebranded as NAKO (North American Kendama Open). This year we are changing the name of the Minnesota Kendama Open to the North America Kendama Open, or NAKO. We are excited because we changed the dates to October 4,5, and 6 so the event doesn't fall on Halloween again. We have also changed the venues and we cant wait! This years event is going tot be the best yet. Save the date! October 4, 5, 6 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 2019 Delta Hotels by Marriott Minneapolis Northeast - 5 minutes from the Sweets shop. Varsity Theater - Last day venue (7-8 minutes from hotel) Here is the current schedule for the event. Here's a layout map of the hotel to help find the activities.
