Thank you for attending J-Fest 2015, check back next year for updates on J-Fest 2016!

J-Fest is an annual 1-Day event, typically held midway between the larger Anime Evolution and serves as a light version of the main convention with special focus on Japanese arts and culture. J-Fest also offers many of our traditional events on a smaller scale including panels, video and AMV showings, gaming, artists, and vendors.

The next J-Fest will be held on March 7, 2015 at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, Burnaby, BC and will run from 10:00am – 6:00pm. Admission is $15 at the door. Children 6 & under are free when accompanied by a paying adult. Nikkei Centre is located on Kingsway, a few blocks northwest of the Edmonds skytrain station.
