Press & Media
Ai-Kon hereby invites representatives of the media to the cover our 8th annual winter convention, Winterfest, which will be held in the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Saturday, February 23 from 12:00 PM until Sunday, February 24 at 1:00 AM. Winterfest is a one-day event intended to help shake off the winter blues for local fans of Japanese animation, Japanese culture, video games and pop culture in general. Every year it endeavors to offer unique and interesting opportunities for attendees to connect with like-minded individuals who share their interests in a fun, friendly and, most importantly, warm environment.
This is the 8th year of Winterfest, the sister event to Manitoba’s largest anime convention, Ai-Kon. Last year, despite being only a one day event, Winterfest 2018 had almost 2000 attendees join us for experiences both new and familiar. This year, we continue to offer old favorites and new and exciting programming for everyone, no matter how old or familiar with Japanese culture they may be!
