Anime-ZAP! is a three day convention that celebrates anime, video games, comic books, and popular culture. Attend the event in costume and make new friends who like anime. Over a thousand people who like anime and pop culture will join us for a fun time filled with cosplays, vendors selling anime merchandise, and amazingly talented artists.
We started the very first Anime-ZAP! clear back in January 2010! Our team was planning to volunteer for and promote a small little anime convention that was going to happen, which ended up being cancelled just before it started. So instead, we started up our own convention!
Despite the last minute planning, our very first event had over 150 fans of anime in Peoria attend in the first year.
