1. What is the Summer Festival?

The Summer Festival is a FREE community event hosted by the SFU Anime Club, the goal is to provide local anime fans with the opportunity to experience a Japanese “Matsuri” style festival right here in Vancouver! The festival is held annually on SFU’s Burnaby Mountain campus in the convocation mall. At the festival itself you can find a variety of festival games, as well as, booths hosted by local artists and vendors selling hand-made art and various other goods. When you get hungry you will find a host of local food vendors cooking up fresh and delicious treats which you can enjoy while watching the various performances and panels occurring on the main stage throughout the event!


Remember to dress up and participate in our cosplay contest for the chance to win some awesome prizes!
