Anime Weekend Atlanta - September 30th - October 2nd
AWA is going on this weekend, September 30th - October 2nd, 2011, at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel and Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia. This is a cultural post rather than a food post, but all of the anime fans I know love Japanese food, and snacks like Pocky.
Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) is a Japanese Animation (Anime) & Comics (Manga) convention. AWA was first organized in 1994, with the first convention held in 1995. Since then, AWA has been recognized as one of the most popular Japanese Animation conventions in the United States, and one of the top ten attended anime conventions in North America.
AWA has a variety of events, including video rooms, a dealers room, costume contest, panels, workshops, an artist alley, and a formal ball.
1) To provide a venue for fans of Japanese Animation and Manga to come together in a festive environment.
2) To educate in the history of the medium by having guests who have worked in the industry.
3) To learn about the aspects of Japanese culture through animation and comics.
