Anime Matsuri


It's festival time! Kaminari Taiko will perform at the 2015 Anime Matsuri at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. This huge festival celebrates anime, cosplay, and Japanese culture and arts.

Look for Kaminari in the main Hallway outside the exhibit halls, where we'll perform once an hour on Friday and Saturday.

This year we're excited to provide, for the first time, an opportunity for Anime Matsuri attendees to try taiko themselves with a series of short, hands-on introductory workshops. These workshops will take place in the Amusement Hall (Exhibit Hall E) between our performances. Each 10-15 minute workshop costs $5/person, and enrollment is first-come, first-served.
