Mochitsuki

Posted January 8, 2008

(Updated news: Online ticket sales extended (small processing fee applies) – Nitaboh anime film showing)

Kumoricon will be hosting a table at Mochitsuki, a Japanese American New Years celebration and cultural fair.

This festival features taiko drumming, mochi (Japanese sticky rice cake) creating, hula dance, a sushi bar, and a community stage featuring organizations like Kumoricon and hands-on crafts and activities. The event organizers will be showing the anime film Nitaboh.

Stop by our table to pre-register for the con or participate in crafts—we’re working on activities that will show what Kumoricon is all about.

As part of our involvement as a Community Partner, Kumoricon is selling tickets to two stage performances during the event. Shows are at 1:00pm and 3:15pm. Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for students and seniors, and $5 for children age 2 to 11. We have extended the original deadline to buy tickets online! Because the event is now very close, tickets can only be purchased online and there is a $1.25 fee. Please purchase tickets online here. We recommend choosing the will call option due to the short time until the event.

Our involvement in the Mochitsuki festival is made possible by selling tickets, so if you are planning to attend, please buy a ticket to the stage performance! If you would like, please stop by our booth and let us know if you bought a ticket, or tell us at publicity@kumoricon.org, so we can get an estimate of the number of ticket sales we have promoted.

We’re looking for volunteers to help setup the table, handle registrations, and create crafts and activities for the booth. If you are interested, please post in this forum thread.

Mochitsuki has had an attendance of over 2500 and this year will be its 12th year. Kumoricon joins it for the first time in what promises to be an exciting event!
