Hey Kumoricon Fans!

It's the new year and Kumoricon wants to celebrate with you!

We intend to be involved more than ever in the Japanese community around Portland/Vancouver and that means getting you involved in all that the Anime/Japanese community has to offer. One of the first big events of the year is Mochitsuki 2012:

What: Traditional Portland/Japanese New Years Festival
When: January 29th, 2012 11AM - 4PM
Where: Scottish Rite Center
Cost: $10 for Adults, $7 for Students and Seniors IF you buy in advance through Kumoricon (By January 12th) or on the Mochitsuki Website

If you are interested in attending this event, we want you to consider buying your ticket through Kumoricon as all Community Partners must sell at least 10 tickets for the event! Help us continue to keep going back to festivals and events by supporting your local Anime Convention!

The festival is a great way to hang out with friends, Cosplay and enjoy a little culture in the local area.

To pre-purchase tickets, e-mail publicity@kumoricon.org for specific instructions. We still have a few tickets left!!!

UPDATE:

After speaking with the Mochitsuki runners, I was able to get an EXTENSION on the $10/$7 prices for the tickets! But you have to get them through us specifically! You wont be able to get that deal through Mochistuki and the rate at the door is more!

I'll be at the General Staff Meeting with the tickets on Sunday the 15th and if you e-mail me, I can meet up anywhere in the Portland Metro area!

We want to see all your happy cosplay/fandom faces at this New Year Celebration!

Is there anything k-con related happening there? Because I remember hearing something about Mochizuki and Kumoricon getting together for the event, but I don't remember what it is......

As in leftover messenger bags, buttons, and other stuff?

Sounds great! I hope there'll be more updates soon!
