List of Upcoming Anime Conventions 2021-2022

anime cons

It’s been difficult not to have the ability to go to anime conventions over the course of the pandemic. Fans everywhere often look forward to escaping into a world of anime, with collectables everywhere, fun voice actor guests, and meeting new friends. So, the shift of having to stay at home over the last year and half, away from any in-person cons, has been challenging. Luckily, 2021 has been a better year for anime conventions than 2020, albeit different, and it looks like things for 2022 are looking up as well.

The following is a list of updated anime conventions that are going on over the next few months and through the course of 2022. Check it out to see if there’s one opening up near you (list courtesy of; updated September 25, 2021):
