The Asia-Northwest Cultural Education Association (ANCEA), is proud to present the twenty-first annual Sakura-Con, March 30th to April 1st, at the Washington State Convention Center in Downtown Seattle Washington.
Attendance for this year is expected to exceed more than 24,000 members per day!
Sakura-Con is a round-the-clock festival of Japanese media, cultural arts, education and
entertainment. Members who attend Sakura-Con are treated to exclusive appearances from Japanese and American celebrities from the anime, manga, gaming and music industry.
Fans, Industry, Guests and Cultural Presenters put on educational and entertaining panels celebrating Asian culture and media fandom. Highlights include concerts, theaters, dances, free gaming suites, exhibitors and much more! Full details, including how to obtain a membership, can be found on our website.
Sakura-Con started with 313 attendees in its inaugural year and has grown to be among the top five largest anime conventions in the nation, second largest of its kind on the West Coast. In 2012, ANCEA received an official commendation from the Japanese Foreign Ministry for contributions to friendship and understanding between Japan and the USA.
ANCEA is a state and federal 501c3 non-profit corporation and entirely volunteer run. The corporaon bylaws state that no one, even the board of directors, can be paid, so Sakura-Con is truly “for the fans, by the fans.”
100% of funds raised go toward supporting the ANCEA mission.
