WOW!! AMA-Con 2013 was definitely a day (and night!) to remember! We had over 2,800 people in attendance and I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time! Thank you SO much to everyone who came out – especially our artists, vendors, volunteers, and special guests. You helped make AMA-Con 2013 the success it was and we really, really appreciate your time, energy, and efforts!

In case you missed the big announcement at the end of the night, AMA-Con 2014 has been scheduled for Saturday, July 12, 2014 at the Amarillo Civic Center! If you’re interested in coming out as a vendor, artist, entertainer, or panelist/presenter, send me a message of interest outlining what you’d like to bring to AMA-Con 2014 and we’ll go from there! You can either send a message through the contact form above or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, the Friends of the Amarillo Public Library Store within the Downtown Library still has some AMA-Con 2013 t-shirts for $10. They’re open Wednesday-Saturday from 11am-4pm. If you’re looking for more comics, anime, manga, and/or Steampunk novels and fashion books, come visit any of APL’s 5 locations!
Again, thank you so much for coming out and supporting AMA-Con 2013, the Amarillo Public Library, and the Friends of the Amarillo Public Library!
