This event aims to be a platform to showcase the great singing talent that the fans of Anime North bring to the convention.

Pop Idol Dance Showcase
This event highlights the variety of pop music within Asian culture. It also provides a platform for participants to express their interest in music through dance covers. As such, this is not a competitive environment, and we welcome anyone who wants to participate based on a first-come, first-serve basis. With that being said however, this is not the stage for already established dance cover groups to perform on — rather it is for individuals who want to meet others with similar musical interests.
Saturday Night Masquerade
The Anime North Masquerade is a staged costume showcase and competition that is a great opportunity to show off that extra-special costume you've been working on.
Toy Display and Model Contest
Come see the display honouring Gerry Anderson and the models of our annual model contest.
