AnimeFest is an annual four-day anime convention held during August at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

Programming

The convention typically offers autograph sessions, cosplay contests, and a masquerade.

History

In 2012, the convention moved from the Hyatt Regency Dallas to the Sheraton Dallas Downtown Hotel. A-Kon also used the same hotel in 2012. AnimeFest in 2017 had issues with its autograph lines. AnimeFest 2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
