Why should you exhibit at Anime Lane this year?

  • A more focused show than last year
  • Everything is included in the cost. No extra charges for tents/freight/handling/unions.
  • A full weekend of events, in a pavilion filled with a diverse range of exhibits of all types, helping to attract a larger audience and more attendee traffic for your booth.

The dynamic is a little different from last year; moving away from a street fair style to a more conventional festival style.

Pricing Information for Vendors and Artists

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

Vendors: (8' x 8' space with table): $400.
Artists: (6' x 4' space with table): $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.
