On Labor Day weekend (September 3-5, 2011) thousands of people who lovingly refer to themselves as otaku (a Japanese word normally used to signify a nerd or geek, which has been adopted by the anime community) will gather together for a convention that will now span two hotels in downtown Vancouver, WA: The Hilton Vancouver Washington, and the Red Lion Vancouver at the Quay.
For three days there will be games, dances, panels, guests, and lots of friends getting together to talk about and celebrate one thing that connects them all—anime. Whatever your flavor, whatever your fandom, the convention is a place to join up with like-minded souls in the area and experience it all, together. We also have video games, tabletop tournaments and tons of contests with great prizes!
Kumoricon 2011 takes over downtown Vancouver, spanning two prominent hotels in the area: The Hilton Vancouver Washington and the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay. With ample meeting space and the beautiful Esther Short Park located just across the street from the main convention area, Vancouver, Washington has opened its doors and hearts to anime fans for Labor Day weekend! Our two hotels are located a short, 3- to 5-minute walk apart.
