WHAT IS ANIME EL PASO?
Anime El Paso is a community based pop culture experience for all that focuses on the Anime/Manga genre. You’ll get to attend panels and workshops hosted by creative pros as well as get autographs and photo ops with your favorite creators and celebrities!
WHEN/WHERE DOES ANIME EL PASO TAKE PLACE?
The 2023 Anime El Paso dates are June 10-11 at the El Paso Convention Center in downtown El Paso, Texas. The hours of operation are Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 10am-5pm.
HOW MAY I GET AN AUTOGRAPH FROM A FEATURED GUEST?
Featured Guest’s autographs are offered at the sole discretion of each Featured Guest. Please note Featured Guests often charge a fee for autographs or offer photos and other memorabilia for sale that they’ll autograph at no additional charge. Their pricing is usually posted at their tables. We’ll do our best to publish these prices on the Event website as that information becomes available to us. We ask all attendees to please be respectful and courteous to the featured guests as they are taking time out of their busy schedules to meet their fans.
HOW MAY I GET A PHOTO OP WITH A FEATURED GUEST?
A professional photography service will provide Photo Ops at the Event. You may purchase your Photo Ops in advance or at the Event. Pricing and availability varies from guest to guest. Your professional Photo Op will be printed out on the spot so there is no waiting.
DO I HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE TO MEET GUESTS?
The length of a guest’s line varies according to the popularity of that guest. Expect to not have a lot of time with the guest. Some guests you may only have 15-30 seconds. It is a balancing act between managing a guest’s time with trying to have that guest meet as many fans as possible. When necessary, the Event will cap lines.
WHAT IS A Q&A PANEL AND HOW DO I ATTEND ONE?
Q&A panels are sessions that showcase a specific topic or featured guest. These panels provide a great opportunity to ask questions, learn things about the industry, or get inside scoops on the upcoming projects of creators or featured guests. Q&A panels are free to all paid attendees of the Event.
DO CHILDREN GET IN FREE TO ANIME EL PASO?
Children ages 2 and younger are free with a paid adult. Children ages 3-12 may get entry with a Child Day Pass. A Child Day Pass will be required for each day the child wants to enter the Event. Children age 13+ must purchase a normal entry ticket.
MAY I WEAR A COSTUME TO ANIME EL PASO?
Absolutely! Cosplay is a big part of comic cons. We encourage fans to dress in their favorite costumes at the Event! This is a judgment free zone where you can celebrate your fandom without harassment.
MAY I TAKE PHOTOS OR RECORD VIDEO AT THE EVENT?
Photography and video recording is permitted in most areas of the Event. Please remember to be respectful of other attendees, guests, exhibitors, volunteers, and facility staff. Some exhibitors and guests may request verbal or signed agreement for photography or video recording of their booths or during their Q&A panels. When taking pictures of others always ask first!
