Vendor Shout Outs

At Otafest 2010 we are graced with the presence of just under 30 different Japanese culture related vendors, selling a variety of items to our continually growing patron count. Our vendors have strived to bring in materials that are not easy to find locally in the hopes of maximizing the enjoyment of the average Otafest-goer. The following is a shout out by a few of the vendors that wanted to let you know they’re coming to the festival, so you can know what to look forward to in the Otafest 2010 vendor room!

Japanese culture has rocked our own culture; with animations, and those little inlet restaurants you never discover until you walk downtown and find out you've gotten yourself lost. But has it rocked our music? Apparently... at least, according to DJ Yoshiman. Pick up his CD at Otafest, and find out just how far Japanese music has gotten us; with video game remixes, original works, and some odd mixing of traditional Japanese meet modern North American style. Purchase a CD at Otafest, and be automatically entered in a draw for a $100 Visa Card (to use online or offline, your choice!). The winner will be announced on DJ Yoshiman's website after Otafest!

Hope to see you all there, I look forward to the different cosplaying!
