/ Events


ASAPA runs several events throughout the year. While the majority of our events occur in Edmonton, we held a Halloween Dance in Calgary in the past.


Our flagship event is, and has always been, Animethon. This convention attracts 8500-9000 con-goers each year and features a variety of guests, music, video programming, and live events. Join us for our festival in August.
