Anime Milwaukee – the largest anime convention in Wisconsin – rings in its lucky 13-year anniversary this year and will bring more than 10,000 people to the city to enjoy the three-day festival aimed at celebrating and educating fans about anime, manga, Asian culture, music and gaming. 

Anime Milwaukee takes place Feb. 14-16 at the Hilton Milwaukee and Wisconsin Center. All attendees must register to enter. Click here to register.

Anime Milwaukee features video gaming, tabletop gaming, panels and workshops, cosplay contests, a film festival, cultural programming, dances, cosplay combat chess, children's events, karaoke, a manga library, a massive vendor hall and more.

Originally a club at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Anime Milwaukee started as a safe place for like-minded fans of anime and Japanese culture. It eventually evolved into the gargantuan event it is today.
