Aniwave was an annual one day anime convention held during December at the Wilmington Convention Center in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Programming

The convention typically offered a costume contest, demonstrations, panels, vendors, and workshops.

History

Aniwave was founded in 2007 by artist Michal Wisniowski as an free film festival held at the Cameron Art Museum and Jengo's Playhouse. The convention moved to a larger venue in 2010, the Wilmington Convention Center, and had new leadership due to Michal Wisniowski moving away.
