With events and attractions in Post Street, Union Square, and the Japantown Peace Plaza, over 80,000 people attended last year's festival, making it one of the largest street fairs in the city. The festival consists of music, art, fashion, food, and film, so you will find something interesting!

Why should you exhibit at Anime Lane this year?

  • Last year's attendance figure of 80,000! This year, we are expecting between 90,000 and 100,000!
  • Everything is included in the cost. No extra charges for tents/freight/handling/unions.
  • A well-trafficked area, as well as a full weekend of events, all through the festival, helping to attract a larger audience and more attendee traffic for your booth.

The dynamic is a little different though, as the selling environment is more street fair style than traditional convention style. For the vendor/artist who has not exhibited at this type of event before, contact our Vendor Representative who can give you some specific recommendations on how to maximize your returns.

Pricing Information for Vendors and Artists

As always, we welcome both vendors and anime/manga artists to Anime Lane!

Vendors: (10' x 10' space with table and two chairs): $400
Artists: (6' x 4' space with table and one chair): $100.
The Artist rate is open to those artists who are primarily selling original artwork and/or fanart (drawings, pencils, paintings, sculptures, etc.) in an anime/manga style. Anime Lane has the final authority to determine if someone qualifies at the Artist Rate. Artists are welcome to share their table with other artists.

All spaces are tented.

Anime Lane

AOD has partnered with the J-Pop Summit Festival to create Anime Lane. Anime Lane is a special section of the Festival dedicated just for anime and manga vendors and artists. Essentially, it's a combined Dealer's Room/Artist Alley, all right there on the street.
