Anime Detour Announcement

Upcoming Events from ATC

July 12th 2015, 20:40 CDT

Anime Detour congoers! Did you know that Anime Twin Cities, the parent organization of Anime Detour, also sponsors multiple events throughout the year? Our Social Outreach Services team is hard at work year-round to provide fun and informational activities for all anime fans to enjoy while we wait for the next convention. Here are some of the events we have coming up!

ATC Cosplay Picnic

Back for a second year, it's our summer cosplay picnic! If you like cosplay, photography, or just hanging out with other anime fans, join us at Como Park on July 18th for an evening of fun. Cosplay is encouraged, but not required - you are welcome in or out of costume. ^_^

This is primarily a potluck event. Please bring something to share with the group. ATC will be providing some meat on the grill and water, but once it's gone, it's gone. We have several games and activities planned, but if you have any ideas, let us know!

We have reserved the West Picnic Shelter, on Midway Parkway near Hamline Ave. This event will go on rain or shine.

Date: July 18th

Vali-Hi Drive-In - July

Once again ATC is going to the Vali-Hi Drive In in Lake Elmo! We’ll be bringing the grill, as well as burgers and brats, but we’ll need plenty of people to eat them! We have no idea what the movies will be, but the box office opens at 7 and the movies begin at dusk! Bring lawn chairs, maybe a boombox or two, and blankets (it gets cold at 3am!), and any treats you think you might like. Kids and (leashed) dogs are welcome! Tickets are $8.50 a person, and we hope to see you there!

Date: July 24th
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Vali-Hi Drive-In theater, 11260 Hudson Blvd in Lake Elmo.
Cost: $8.50 for three movies.
