Guests

We announce guests throughout the year, so check back often!

Otafest creates inclusive events which build a community of fans of Japanese anime, popular culture and related arts.

Each year, Otafest selects a local charitable cause for which to fundraise. You can help by participating in Otafest’s Charity Auction, Angel Passes, Sketch Drive,  Cards Against Otafest, & more!

Please help us reach our $5,000 goal to support the local community and remember to attend closing ceremonies for our traditional fun and often embarrassing games for our planning team!
