ANIMEFEST GOES TO THE MAJESTIC THEATRE

AnimeFest is extremely excited to announce that this year's Cosplay Contest will be held at The Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas! Only a block away from the Sheraton Convention Center, The Majestic is an iconic Dallas landmark, a 1,700 seat theatre billed as "one of the most elegant performing arts venues in the southwest".

As our con has grown, the cosplay contest has become so popular that even the spacious accommodations in the convention center are no longer adequate to contain the event. The AnimeFest team has been working very hard since the last convention coming up with a plan to let as many people as possible attend and view the contest.
We think this is going to be a wonderful experience for all of our cosplayers and attendees. #cosplay
