April 26-27, 2014
Alexis Park Resort
Las Vegas, NV
AD Sabakon began as Anime Day Vegas in the summer of 2011 as a way for the Anime lovers of Las Vegas to enjoy spending time together while waiting for the bigger anime conventions in the fall season. The first Anime Day was held in July 2011 at the Circus Circus Adventuredome Themepark and included a cosplay contest, dance contest, trivia games, and much more.
At the request of many attendees, Anime Day Vegas returned to the Adventuredome in April of 2012. With the inclusion of a DDR tournament, a dance contest, and an exhibitor hall, the convention was a huge success! Cosplayers brought their best to the cosplay competition, DDR competitors worked up a sweat, and champions came home with trophies and prize money. With an audience growth of over 300% from Anime Day '11 to Anime Day '12, Anime Day Vegas was destined for another year.
From Anime Day Vegas in '12 to Sabakon in '13, the convention growth more than doubled. With the con's very first guests of honor (Tiffany Grant, Jessica Straus, Todd Haberkorn, and Richie Branson), 2013 was a very successful year. 2014 is now in the works and is looking to be even bigger and better than ever before!
