What You’ll Do



Outstanding Programming

We host the region’s premier Japanese culture panels, in association with the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival. From the consulate to martial arts and more, explore the best of Japan.


Anime Bar & Manga Library

Relax and read your favorites in a safe space. And for 21+ attendees, join us after hours in bar designed specifically for Otaku.


Maid Cafe

Join us at Kirei Cosplay Café. They’ll be doing shows all weekend long in the Vail room.



Here at Colorado Anime Fest, we’re a family. Last year, we established a tradition to pay tribute to our staff while raising money for great causes. This year, we are saddened by the loss of Neal Feldman, father to staffers Amber, Sammi and Tanya. In his honor, they have chosen to support Urban Peak. You won’t find auction items like ours anywhere else.

Please help us honor Neal Feldman this weekend at our charity auction on Sunday, 2:30-3:30 PM in Main Events and by visiting our silent auction table near Vendors’ Hall and Artists Alley all weekend long for rare sketches, signed keepsakes and more. 100% of all money raised from charity programming will go straight to Urban Peak, who will also have a table on the lower level convention floor.


All your faves!

Panels, cosplay contests, AMVs, we have those and more. But you won’t spend all weekend in lines.
