Welcome to AnimeCon

The Anime, Cosplay and Game Festivals!

AnimeCon festivals are about more than anime! They are international festivals for fans of anime, cosplay, games, manga and popular culture.

Due to the severity of the COVID-19 situation, both our regular edition of AnimeCon, scheduled for June 11-13 2021, and AnimeCon Classic, scheduled for September 24-26 2021 have unfortunately been postponed to next year.

However, for 2021 we are preparing a Christmas Special edition at the Broodfabriek on December 11-12. To stay informed about the details, subscribe to our newsletter (check your spambox!).

Many details will be announced at a later date. However, we'd like to emphasize: This is a one-time 2-day AnimeCon special. The normal 3-day festival will be held in June 2022 so, no worries, your 3 days of summer fun will still be there again. Ticket sales are not yet open, so please keep an eye on our social media for more details.

Your opinion is important to us in order to decide what kind of AnimeCons we will organize in the future! Share your thoughts on our Discord and Facebook Groups.

AnimeCon is an annual anime convention organised by volunteers of the J-POP Foundation. Learn about Japanese (pop)-culture and experience an amazingly fun anime convention weekend with anime and manga fans. Keep an eye on our page for upcoming events.
