Anime Banzai is Utah’s premiere anime convention! Every year, Utah Anime Promotions (UAP) participates in and hosts various cultural and educational events. The main event is the Anime Banzai Convention held over three days in October of each year. Presented by UAP, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, this three-day weekend is filled with anime, manga, gaming, Asian culture, guests, panels, games, contests, kids’ events, viewing rooms, an Artist’s Alley, an Exhibitor’s Hall, silent auctions for various charities, two dances, and so much more. This year Anime Banzai will be held at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah from Friday, October 18th through Sunday, October 20th.
UAP and Anime Banzai work hand-in-hand with several charity organizations. Throughout the year at the Monthly Pre-Con Events and at the Anime Banzai Convention itself, attendees collect soda pop tabs (or tabs from soup cans, or wherever else they can be found) for the Ronald McDonald House at Primary Children’s Hospital. Also throughout the year, attendees donate money and non-perishable foods for the Utah Food Bank. At the Anime Banzai Convention, there are two silent auctions being held for two different charities – the Best Friends Animal Society and Utah Autism Give.
