This year Anime Revolution and Pride are taking place on the same weekend. They are two of our favourite events to vend at so we were having a crazy difficult time trying to figure out which event to go to. We tried weighing all the pros and cons, we tried to think of which event was more fun, and we even tried to flip a coin. In the end we decided that there was no possible way to choose and we decided to do both! It may sound crazy but this weekend you’ll be able to catch us at Anime Revolution on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and we will also be at Sunset Beach for Pride on Sunday.
Anime Revolution is a three day event taking place at the Vancouver Convention Center. Prepare yourself for a gathering of Vancouver’s most creative cosplayers and showcase your cosplay to like-minded fans! Whether you’re a cosplayer, or simply curious about the anime culture, you will find stunning cosplays that will either induce nostalgia, or bring out the inner fan in you! Don’t shy away and come experience the enjoyment of cosplay!
Pride is a one day, free event taking place at Sunset Beach. Over 150,000 Pride partiers take in the Festival and Market, which is a great place to be before, after, and even during the Parade. Browse through 100 + booths at the market to buy some pride souvenirs or view local artisans work, or you can learn more about local non-profits and other exhibitors. There is a 19 + beer garden available with a DJ for this popular event. Live music on the main stage. Bring your family to the family zone for some kid friendly events.
