Harumatsuri is an annual 1-Day event, typically held midway between the larger Anime Evolution and serves as a light version of the main convention with special focus on Japanese arts and culture. Harumatsuri also offers many of our traditional events on a smaller scale including panels, video and AMV showings, gaming, artists, and vendors.
