This section is for the Animazement community.  If you are interested in connecting with other attendees, or becoming a volunteer and helping Animazement staff, this is the place for you!

The Forum

The Animazement Forum is a place where our attendees can connect and share their experiences at Animazement, reminisce about conventions past, and plan for the next Animazement. They can also plan Cosplay events, panels, and discuss the current anime viewing.

Become a Volunteer!

Every year we need qualified volunteers to help out in various areas of the convention. No previous experience needed, just stop by Con Ops during the convention and sign up! All hours that you help out will go towards earning Volunteer Rewards! Read more about volunteering…

Contribute Section

Animazement is the primary event sponsored by Educational Growth Across Oceans, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. However, EGAO has plans to do much more, including a future scholarship program. You may make tax-exempt charitable donations, to help us further our mission of sharing Japanese language and culture. We gratefully accept donations of money, as well as goods (items for prizes/giveaways, computers, equipment, etc.)

If you’d like to make a monetary donation, we can accept credit cards via PayPal, or checks via postal mail. Our PayPal address is: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
