Anime Banzai Convention

Event Details

It’s time for Anime Banzai!

The Anime Banzai Convention is an educational convention focusing on Japanese anime (animation), manga (comics), and culture. Anime Banzai is sponsored by Utah Anime Promotions, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to bringing the culture, art, and fun of Japan to Utah.

The goal of the Anime Banzai Convention is to bring an event to Utah where fans can come together to celebrate Japan and Japanese Culture in a fun, safe, family-friendly atmosphere. To that end, we hold our convention three days each year in October over UEA weekend with panels, events, and contests that will let fans enjoy their favorite aspects of Anime and Japanese popular culture. We have a video game room, a card and tabletop gaming room, two viewing rooms, a vendors’ hall, an artists’ alley, panels, events, two dances, and guests – and it’s all included in your ticket! There are no extra fees (unless you purchase food or a souvenir) for anything: not guests’ autographs or photographs, not the contests or events, and not the panels. Join us for another exciting year at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah!
