AniFest is an annual one-day anime convention held during spring at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center in Torrance, California. The convention's name is a portmanteau of 'anime' and 'festival'. AniFest was established in 2017 and has attracted more than two thousand guests per year.
Events and Programming[edit | edit source]
The convention features anime screenings, Arcane maid cafe, artist alley, cosplay guests, dealers hall, fashion show, karaoke, panels, and video gaming. The organization also invites local charities including Extra Life to fund-raise for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Like other conventions, AniFest also has a vendor hall featuring a variety of artists and exhibitors. Attendees can find anime goods such as DVD video, cosplay merchandise, figurines, and other crafts.
History[edit | edit source]
Fans of Japanese animation from an online Facebook group organized the one-day festival to be held in Torrance, CA. The organization eventually formed into a 501(c)3 Non-profit charity. AniFest is scheduled to return on March 23rd, 2019 with additional guests and increased indoor floor space.
