Anime Festival Orlando (AFO) is an annual three-day anime convention held during summer at the Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive in Orlando, Florida.

Programming

The convention typically offers an Artist Alley, cosplay contents, maid cafe, panels, rave, vendors, and a video game room. An interactive game "Orlandia" occurs during the convention. The convention's charity event in 2009 benefited Child's Play.

History

The conventions organization began in December 1999. AFO shared space with another convention hosting Governor Jeb Bush in 2006. Anime Festival Orlando 2020 was moved from June to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but was later cancelled.
