JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – AnimeDay, a small and affordable event, is coming to Jacksonville on Jan. 16 at Embassy Suites on Baymeadows.

For many, AnimeDay is a chance to have fun, cosplay and be themselves. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.

The one-day anime marketplace features over 9,000 sq. ft. (It’s Over 9000!) of anime, fantasy, comic and hobby dealers.

“You’re sure to find some great gift ideas for both you and your friends,” the website said. “It’s also a great place to meet other anime fans and find items you won’t see anywhere else. So be sure to stop by and take a look at what our vendors and artists have to offer.”

There will be prize giveaways, raffle drawings, cosplay, fan panels and free parking.

Tickets are $3.00 at the door. Military personnel and kids 10 and under get in for free.

Safety guidelines:

  • Masks will be required for all attendees
  • Mandatory temperature checks
  • Limited room capacity
  • One-directional traffic
  • Social distancing

“Due to the current health crisis we are doing our best to scale everything back to just the marketplace for vendors and artists this year,” the website said. “This way, we can give our AnimeDay friends and family a safe environment to come by and help support local independent vendors, artists and even the hotels because this has been a tough year for everyone in the industry.”

Location:

Embassy Suites Jacksonville – Baymeadows

9300 Baymeadows Road, Jacksonville, Florida, United States 32256
