Easter Weekend West Coast Cons and Shows Multiple comic and sci-fi conventions are being held up and down the West Coast this Easter weekend. The rundown of these shows include: Norwescon is the Pacific Northwest’s premier science fiction and fantasy convention and one of the largest regional science fiction and fantasy conventions in the United States. While maintaining a primarily literary focus, Norwescon is large enough to provide a venue for many of the other aspects of science fiction and fantasy and the interests of its fans such as anime, costuming, art, gaming, and much, much more. Confirmed celebrity guests at Norwescon 38 include George R. R. Martin (Author), Julie Dillon (Artist), Amy Mainzer (Science), and Random House (Spotlight Publisher). Norwescon is now in the 38th year of a fabled existence. This year it is being held at the Sea-Tac Airport Hilton near Seattle, Washington April 2-5. Sakura-Con Presented by the Asia Northwest Cultural Education Association, Sakura-Con is the oldest and most well attended anime convention in the Pacific Northwest. Member attendance for Sakura-Con 2013 was over 20,000 individuals, with most members attending all three days! Sakura-Con 2015 celebrates the 18th anniversary and is held April 2-5 at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. Programming includes anime theaters, gaming, cosplay, cultural panels, dances, concerts, art contests, AMV's, industry guests, over 100,000 square feet of exhibits hall, guests of honor, and more! And then there is Wonder-Con, one of the largest cons held on the West Coast. Previously held in San Francisco, Wonder-Con is now in Anaheim and runs April 3-5.
