Animethon to Cancel 2021 Event


As COVID-19 continues to impact our lives and vaccine rollout underway, the executive committee has been keeping a close eye on the vaccine distribution developments within Alberta and across the country. The vaccine will not be distributed to everyone in time for us to plan and execute our event effectively. We are not confident that we will be able to provide everyone with a safe and fun environment while being socially responsible. Despite the many variations of mitigation strategies we have devised, plus following the guidelines put forth by our health authorities, it is not enough to protect our beloved community. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Animethon 27, scheduled for August 6-8th, 2021.

We appreciate and value the many supporters, staff, and industries in the community. It is with that on our conscience; we understand we have the responsibility to prevent the spread of the virus and protect our community. Until the current health crisis has been resolved, ASAPA and the Animethon Committee cannot confidently bring you a safe environment and quality event and programming that our community has come to expect. We hope everyone understands this difficult decision.

This cancellation has been a very difficult decision for us, but we will continue to use this extra time earned to continually reassess the situation and hopefully bring you alternate programming in the near future. In the meantime, we hope you all stay healthy and happy. See you next time.

We will be starting our next Animethon with a clean slate. We will be issuing full refunds over the month of February. Stay tuned to our social media for updates on future events.
