Coat CheckWe will be running a Coat Check again this year for Event attendees.
More information will be available closer to the event.
Anime CafeHunger and want a place to go rest and chat with fellow fans, we got you covered in the Anime Cafe! That right, the event's very own cafeteria and rest stop featuring a place to sit and eat right inside the hotel so you don't have to miss a thing or go outside in the cold.
The hotel has taken a lot of feedback from last year and will be making various improvements.
More details will be available closer to the event.
In the beginning, Animethon was a one-day event that allowed people to view different Japanese Anime movies and television shows within two classrooms at Grant MacEwan. Since Animethon 2, the festival has grown to utilize the entirety of the University campus for events, artist alley, education panels, and a large vendor hall. As such, the steady increase of numbers in attendees to Animethon has allowed for various vendors to expose themselves to a unique group of people both young and old.
A Taste of Animethon was first created in 2010. While nowhere near the size of Animethon itself it's been a successful event in its own right with a steadily growing attendance. In 2013 we moved venues to the Ramada Inn and Conference Centre. We hope that you'll join us to make this year's event just as successful!

- Attendance is based on total unique sum of attendees, staff, volunteers, panelists, etc.
- Attendance numbers are listed for optimal comparison. Prior to Animethon 13 (2006) we had a different pass structure and counted attendees differently as well. Thus those numbers are not listed here.
