2020 Virtual Convention
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel Anime Fusion 2020. But we won’t let a year go by without bringing you a celebration of anime, even if it can’t be in person. We’re excited to bring you our first-ever virtual convention, a one-day special event taking place completely online! Join us for games, panels, vendors, cosplay activities, and more! Best of all, it’s free!
Anime Fusion is a small, non-profit event. Every dollar we make is spent on the convention and its operating expenses. If you’d like to support us through the pandemic while we don’t have our usual convention to generate income, we’re also taking optional donations through our virtual event. If you “register” for the virtual con with a minimum $10 donation, we’ll send you a free swag bag after the event!
Content at our free, one-day online event will include:
- Cosplay! Our Cosplay department is putting together panels and opportunities for people to show off their costumes.
- Gaming! We’ll have Twitch streaming, Jackbox games, and shared servers for attendees to play on.
- Vendors! We’re working on a virtual presence for our artists and dealers.
- Panels! We have a variety of fun and family-friendly content in the works. If you have the tech to stream a video conference from home, you can run a panel too! See the next section for information about submitting content for the event.
- Special presentations! Our partner groups such as the Barony of Mystic Dawn will provide their own unique style of programming.
- More to be announced as plans continue!
We’re also looking for content from you, our attendees! If you have the means of streaming a panel or hosting an activity online, we’d love to put you on the schedule! Fill out the form below to submit your content ideas.
- You must have the means of streaming your own content, i.e. a webcam and microphone and a capable computer.
- We will provide a timeslot for your content, promote it on our schedule, and either link to your stream or provide the necessary access for you to stream your content to our attendees.
- As we are unable to verify anyone’s age, all content for the virtual convention must be appropriate for all ages. Staff admins will be present throughout the event.
- We are open to any kind of content! Group games, presentations, craft demos, traditional discussion panels – all types are welcome!
Our virtual convention is free and open to the public. Registration is completely optional. If you’d like to register, for a minimum donation of $3 we’ll mail you a special commemorative badge for the virtual con. If you make a donation of at least $10, we’ll also send you a swag bag of free Anime Fusion goodies as a thank you!
Donate at least $10 by October 1st to receive an exclusive reward item!
