|Miscellaneous: From Artists Alleys to Art Shows, Anime Music Videos to casual conversations with esteemed Guests of Honor, shopping inside the Dealers Hall to participating numerous panels, you can always find something to do at Fanime-con. Some of the things that keep Fanime-con a little different form the others is their Stage 0 that is held just outside the Dealers Hall. Most conventions don't do a live stage in the halls, but Fanime has space to allow it and it definitely attracts a crowd as well as garner more attendees willing to experience more of fun Fanime-dom. Numerous live performances included panels, workshops, and live musical guests not already offered at the MusicFest which was held in the San Jose Performing Arts Theater across the street.|
