This is certainly the week to find something awesome to do. Eight events coming at ya.
Don’t know what to do for the week? Well, check out what’s going on for this weekend.
2016 marked the return of the Japanese Animation Film and Anime eXpo (aka JAFAX). JAFAX began in June of 1996 at Kendall College as a one day event. It grew to become a two day event for the next year at that location. From year 3 to 19, JAFAX resided at the beautiful campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. JAFAX 19 was the last year the event was held at GVSU. Unfortunately the event grew too big for the campus, since the attendance level was over 5000 people. JAFAX 20 signaled the transition from a free 2 day event to a 3 day ticketed event. DeVos Hall became the new home for the Grand Rapids anime and Japanese culture event.

Grand Rapids’ longest running anime con is back. This convention was sorely missed in 2015. 2016 will mark the 20th anniversary event for the convention which celebrates attendees dressed in costumes of popular Japanese animation characters, cultural seminars, like how to make traditional Japanese meals, and even local artists who will exhibit at booths throughout the weekend.
JAFAX (Japanese Animation, Film, and Art eXpo) is a long running anime convention in Grand Rapids with 19 years of history. Rae and Jon talk about this awesome convention and the guests. Check it out.
