Sacramento has proven it can bring out record numbers for SacAnime events, and the next upcoming weekend of fun looks to be a repeat performance.
Whether a fan of Asian culture, anime or manga, there is little doubt attendees will find something of interest at this year’s installment of the gathering between Jan. 6th and 8th.
In addition to an overwhelming number of vendors, signature booths, panels and workshops, there will also be plenty of games that children can join if they know their way around card decks or controllers.
SacAnime 2023 features Dave Wittenberg (Naruto’s Kakashi Hatake), Johnny Yong Bosch (Dragon Ball, Demon Slayer, Power Rangers, Bleach, Trigun), Troy Baker (Naruto, The Last Of Us, Uncharted, Bioshock Unlimited) and many more surprises for fans of all ages.
Event-goers should bring their wallets, satchels or backpacks to take advantage of all the tables selling one-of-a-kind clothing, books, trinkets, videos and other creative goodies.
Door times differ from day-to-day, but the exhibitor’s hall opens Friday starting at noon. Tickets can be purchased at www.sacasnime.com in advance for a small discount by January 2nd, or at the door for an extra $5 per ticket. Children under 11 are free. The SAFE Credit Union Convention Center is located at 1400 J Street in Sacramento.
