COSPLAY MEETUP SCHEDULE

OVERVIEW

Want to meet with other cosplayers? Be part of a Dragon Ball brawl? Or a Sailor Moon reunion? See below for Anime NYC’s schedule of cosplay meetups.

  • Please note all meetups are submitted and hosted by fans. Anime NYC does not directly organize any cosplay meetups.
  • The Javits Center is a big place, but we have one official photoshoot area – the River Pavilion. This is a large glass-enclosed atrium at the top of the fourth floor of the Javits Center.

If you have any cosplay meetup questions, please reach out to info@animenyc.com.
