Want another chance to show off your cosplay, and meet up with new friends you made at Zenkaikon? Join us on April 12th at Sakura Sunday!
Sakura Sunday, run by the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia (JASGP), celebrates the blooming of the sakura (cherry blossom) trees in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. Attendees can enjoy musical performances, martial arts demonstrations, crafts, vendors, food, tours of Shofuso Japanese house, and more! Tickets are $10 at the event, or $8.38 purchased in advance online. It’s a great way to celebrate the coming of Spring!
Zenkaikon will have a booth at the festival and we would love for you to stop by! Check out our displays about anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture. Stop by in your favorite cosplay and your photo might end up on the Zenkaikon website or Facebook!
Our booth will be located in the Little Akiba Area (map coming soon!)
