Holiday Anime Faire - Fremont, CA - Saturday, December 3rd, 2011
Holiday Anime Faire is a small anime convention put on once a year by the city of Fremont, California. I'm going to have a table there in their Dealer's Room this year.

According to one fan who went last year: "It mostly focuses on anime and video game merchandise, there's a variety of stuff to buy, though not a ton, it is a small con, and a few art workshops to attend. There are activity booths advertised for $1 or one activity ticket (you get two with your badge), but they're usually changed to free later in the day. I believe your badge also comes with a voucher for one free food or drink item. They have a raffle every hour, and there's also a small cosplay contest judged both by judges and by audience favorites."

Badge prices for this year have not yet been announced, but are usually $7 - $10 at the door. 

Holiday Anime Faire
Fremont Teen Center in Central Park (Lake Elizabeth)
39770 Paseo Padre Parkway
Fremont, CA 94538
(Turn into park at Sailway Drive, Turn left at U-shaped parking lot)
PARKING IS FREE


Their website hasn't been updates since last year, but the 2011 date was announces elsewhere (magazine advertisement).

Convention and Fandom Survey
(Posted with permission from the moderators.)

Hello! I’m currently doing research on Fandom and conventions for my doctoral dissertation in Cultural Anthropology at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Specifically, I’m looking at the relationship between Fandom participation and convention attendance and the ways that fan culture manifests online versus in-person.

Phase 1 of my research involves a survey of all kinds of adult fans (whether or not you currently attend fan conventions). I would like as many people to complete as possible so that I can gain a statistical overview of Fandom and preference for conventions. The survey is located at http://tinyurl.com/fandomsurvey and should take no more than 15 or 20 minutes to complete. I am posting this to several places, so I apologize if you see this more than once. If you know of a community that I should post it in please contact me here or feel free to repost.

Thank you for your time!

Community in need of moderator...
Hi.
I created this community January 20th of 2001. That was a long time ago.
I got old, sad, poor and tired. I don't go to conventions or expositions anymore. I work about 50 hours a week and I rarely even think about the loads of fun I used to have watching anime and being a part of that community.
If you think you can, and would like to passionately care for this community, please let me know.
Thanks,
-a
