QC Anime-zing! is an annual three-day festival celebrating Japanese anime, and all related fandoms, communities, and arts. We support the gathering of hundreds of fans coming together to celebrate their mutual interest in anime and related media by organizing autograph sessions, panels, workshops, concerts, social events, game tournaments, anime screenings, and more. Anime-zing! is the best way to have a ton of fun with a ton of other people who enjoy anime.
We also exist outside of the convention weekend to organize anime screenings, social cosplay events, and to coordinate with other groups in the community to build a vibrant fandom in the area. We're always also welcoming new staff. The annual convention is held somewhere in the Quad Cities (right on the border of Iowa and Illinois along Interstate 80), bringing together well over 500 fans each year. We also work on other conventions, which include Anime-SPARK! in Cedar Rapids, Iowa around Valentine's Day, and Anime-ZAP! in Peoria, Illinois in January. Each convention is especially unique, with an excellent variety of events, guests, and activities at each one. We hope to give fans the best possible convention experience.
QC Anime-zing! has long supported the community by giving free admission to underprivileged youth, community members, and local teachers. To date we estimated we have contributed at least $1,000 in free admission, support, and work to supporting the community. In the next coming years we hope to work with more charities and community organizations, and we are always interested in your ideas. We also give free admission to certain teachers and educators.
This year's convention will be at the RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa.
