February 18 at UC San Diego's Price Center
11:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Animefest, a time and place where animanga lovers, artists, and entertainers celebrate what we love! On February 18, 2023, participants go to the Price Center at UCSD to attend discussion and workshop panels, buy the best artwork, and check out your favorite manga in our manga library! And of course, there will be cosplays, festival games, and video games—all for some otaku fun.
