Anime Banzai is Utah’s largest Anime convention. This three-day event is held annually and currently hosted at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah.
Guests at this year’s event included voice actors Aaron Campbell, Marissa Lenti, Ry McKeand, and Steve Warky Nunez. The guest of honor this year was writer/artist Wendy Pini.
Anime Banzai has a lot going on with something for everyone. If you are competitive, they have numerous contests including the AMV contest, art show, cosplay contest, idol competition, and a mascot drawing contest. Other events included a second-hand sale, scavenger hunt, trivia, dances, karaoke, crafting, screenings, and panels on almost any topic you can imagine.
Next year’s event is already scheduled for October 18-20, 2024. Be sure to catch them next year.
