The Anime Frontier Powered By Crunchyroll convention has announced that the 2021 event is postponed to December 3-5, 2021 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Forth Worth, Texas. The event was previously scheduled for May 14-16, 2021. The announcement stated, “Our primary goal is the health, safety, and wellbeing of our fans, guests, exhibitors, partners, and team.”
Organizers announced in March 2020 that this year’s planned event was canceled “out of an abundance of caution and rising coronavirus concerns.” They then initially rescheduled the inaugural event for May 2021.
As previously announced, attendees who already bought tickets for the convention may retain them for the upcoming event or request for a refund. All exhibitors that were scheduled for booths at the convention may also move their participation to next year or request for a refund.
Event company LeftField Media, which hosts the Anime NYC, Awesome Con, Rose City Comic Con, and Big Easy Con events in the United States, is hosting Anime Frontier. Crunchyroll is the title sponsor.
