NEW EVENT! QCA SPRING FESTIVAL

Join Quad Cities Anime, the parent organization of Anime Fusion, for a brand new (and hopefully annual) event! We present to you our Spring Festival!

Join us on Discord for panels, video games, crafts, culture, and more. This event is themed around springtime and the long tradition of springtime festivals in Japan. One of QCA’s goals has always been to bring the culture of Japan to our Minnesota community. We hope you’ll join us for some fun and education!

Join our Discord server at: https://discord.gg/C8aN86tKhq

Please note that the server will be undergoing some vast cosmetic changes in the next month as we prepare for the festival.

You can also keep track of this event on Facebook: QCA Spring Festival

DONATIONS ACCEPTED!

This event is completely free to attend. However, we welcome donations from those who wish to support QCA and Anime Fusion with a monetary gift. Anime Fusion is our primary fundraiser, and our inability to hold an in-person convention in 2020 due to COVID-19 has left us with limited funds to cover operating expenses for QCA and the setup costs for Anime Fusion 2021. We are forever grateful for the support of our community during this difficult time.
