Notabilité of the festival:

The Quebec Chronicle Telegraph announced the growth of Festival Nadeshicon in 2012 on its premium paying online newsplayer:

lefil, a community newpaper from Université Laval, announced the coming of Festival Nadeshicon in 2011. The local Japanese association Amitié Québec-Japon was also present to hold a bazaar and promote their yearly events in Quebec City. A fundraising activity was put forth to raise funds to aid the Japanese people after they had lived their worst earthquake yet. The money will go to the Red Cross. (aussi ça)

The Consul General, Tatsuo Arai, attended Festival Nadeshicon 2013 and took a picture with cosplayers that participated at the masquerade. Radio-can :

The logo of Festival Nadeshicon present on the collaborators page in a provincial wide collaboration to promote Japanese culture:

Hi all, Maxime Girard from Festival Nadeshicon here. I just noticed this wiki page up and I'd like to help make it clearer. I'm not a champion with Wikipedia editing, but I noticed a few things that would need editing for this Nadeshicon wiki page. If someone is good with Wikipedia, here below are some facts about the festival to implement. I'll add references, proof and such as I come by it. If anyone else is also good at finding pertinent links and such, by all means please do so. Oh, and Club Animé Québec (CAQ) was founded in 1992.

Pages to think about and organize similarly seeing as they are similar festivals to Nadeshicon.

Here are some bits of information we can use from 2009 to 2012. I'll get the full roster of guests for each edition as I find my lists. I suggest to add the convention date of 2010 as it was truly the first time we held the event. The precursor was a cultural gathering in 2009.

2009 : New activity at Club Animé Québec souper culturel (Go tables managed by the UL Go Club, sushi served throughout the evening, a Japanese teacher told her many experiences in Japan, Calligraphy demonstrations) at the Jean-Charles-Bonenfant Pavilion.

2010 : 3 Clubs for one day + Japanese cultural convention

3 Clubs for one day : Collaboration between CAQ + UL Go Club + Seigneurs de Naguère

Japanese cultural convention : Harajuku Québec begins collaborations with club animé québec. Evenings were supposed to be dancing nights with DJ's (Harajuku Québec) and the afternoon managed by CAQ(Club Animé Québec) to organize Japanese cultural events. At the last minute Harajuku Québec left by lack or organization and club animé québec managed to turn around within 3 weeks to make their cultural event during the whole weekend. The Consul General of the time loans to CAQ cultural objects to expose during the festival and slowly develops a relationship of confidence with them and continu to do so year after year.


Richard Fournier (Haikist), Maxime Chouinard (Martial artist), Michel Mantah (Calligraphy), Kayo Yasuhara (Founder of Komachi Montreal), Carole (et Masami Gauvin) for tea ceremony, Bernard Grégoire (Bujinkan Québec), Ryoko Nakajima (pastries chef), Ryunosuke Yamazumi (Japanese juggler)

2011 : The year of successful financing, CAQ becomes a noneprofit organization and the festival acquires a name (Festival Nadeshicon)

Financing activities : Maid Café, Bal Masqué, etc

Fusion of many ideas for the festival (cultural, anime, European inspiration, american inspiration) :

Note : We managed to integrate this year panels et the masquerade far more efficiently this year (conferences, workshops and activities)

Résult : Festival Nadeshicon : Popular culture (ex : anime, masquerade) / Traditional culture (dance, martial arts, religion, cuisine, calligraphy, etc)
