Asheville Anime Regional Convention
Asheville Anime Regional Convention is a fan-operated event. We are dedicated to spreading awareness and appreciation for all fandoms, with our primary focus remaining on Japanese animation, manga, and culture. In addition to providing a regional event for fans to gather and share common interests, AARC seeks to become a vehicle for sharing and disseminating industry information. Finally, we provide an outlet for the community and related industries to network and conduct business.
Cosplay America is the first east coast convention dedicated to all things cosplay. This event gathers casual and professional cosplayers, costume and prop craftspeople, and photographers together for a weekend full of workshops, classes, demonstrations, and social events. These learning opportunities are hosted by our official cosplay guests, who travel from around the world to attend Cosplay America!
