The streets of Downtown Burbank are filled with world-famous animators, trendsetting indie creators, cosplayers recreating favorite animated characters, and live entertainment.
The Creative Talent Network once again anchors the popular animation portion of the festival with the CTN Road Trip. The Road Trip unites more than 100 visual effects, videogaming, character designers, illustrators, and storyboard artists for the fourth straight year.
New this year is the Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair, which curates the festival’s 100 indie craft exhibitors.
In addition to discovering hundreds of exclusive artworks on display, the festival offers the rare opportunity to interact with top artists from the world of animation, enjoy cosplayers from books and films, join in a Doodle Run, attend Storytime and artist showcases, explore virtual worlds, engage with roaming musicians, and participate in a Career Camp for promising young artists.
The festival takes place on four blocks of San Fernando Boulevard between Burbank Town Center and the Holiday Inn.
