Otakon 2010 in Baltimore this weekend

Their website has all the information. Including a pretty complex schedule.

And here's how they describe it:

About Otakon

Otakon is the convention of the otaku generation: by fans, for fans; and we're back for our 17th year in 2010!

Join thousands of your fellow fans as we descend on Baltimore to celebrate all anime, manga, and all facets of Asian pop culture!

Ever since 1999, we've taken over a sizable chunk of Baltimore's Inner Harbor for a 3-day festival celebrating the pop culture that's brought us everything from Astroboy to Yu-Gi-Oh, from the Seven Samurai to Spirited Away.

Otakon starts tomorrow in Baltimore

The big anime/manga/Japanese culture fest starts at the Baltimore Convention Center on July 17th. Here's a profile and details - "Devotees of anime have a weekend of adventure at Otakon Convention," By Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun July 16, 2009.

I forgot this was coming up, but Marc Nathan (promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con) mentioned to me yesterday that Otakon, one of the major anime/manga conventions, is coming up on July 17th through the 19th at the Baltimore Convention Center. I have never attended, but am told it is something to behold! Comic-oriented guests include some of the UDON crew (I know Jo Chen, Jeffrey "Chamba" Cruz, and Jamie Noguchi will be at that booth, though that's just from Googling) and Yamila Abraham, publisher at Yaoi Press.
