AnimeFest 2021 Event Canceled, With an Online Event Scheduled for July 2021 Instead

The staff of Dallas anime convention AnimeFest has announced that this year’s event has been canceled due to effects related to COVID-19, including concerns about traveling and the ability to properly social distance attendees and adhere to recommended guidelines. The related GameFest convention has also been canceled. In place of the planned in-person convention, the staff will stream a free AnimeFest Virtual Celebration event on July 31, 2021. The staff is also working with the convention’s hotel to see if it can plan an event for later in 2021.

The convention was originally scheduled to take place from July 30-August 2, 2021 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel.

Last year’s AnimeFest event was scheduled to take place in August 2020 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel, but it was canceled.
