About AO

AO Festival is a one day event that celebrates all Anime and Animation. Hawaii is the perfect melting pot of visitors from Japan and locals that enjoy Japanese culture. Manga, Anime, and Gaming is a favorable past time here in Hawaii where locals of all ages use as a form of entertainment.

We here at AO Festival would like to show the latest in Anime and Manga culture with our community by putting on one of the most well-rounded events with an Hawaii Anime Awards and an All-day Anime Festival.

AO Festival was originally an idea birthed from Anime Ohana which is where AO comes from. We look forward to providing a high quality event for the community!
