Holiday Matsuri 2020 Cancellation

Greetings everyone,

The executive leadership of Holiday Matsuri has been working all year to build a festive, fun, and safe event for our 10th anniversary show this December. The safety of those who attend our event is and has always been our main concern and this year has presented challenges none of us could have ever expected. After extensive deliberation, it has become evident that it is not possible to host Holiday Matsuri 2020 safely. Please know that we are share in your frustration – disappointed doesn’t even begin to describe how we feel about this announcement and we wish we had better news.

We have already started working on our big 10th anniversary show for 2021 and will at the Orlando World Center Marriott on December 17-19, 2021. Mark the date now. It’s a party you won’t want to miss.

Please stay tuned to our social media as we roll out information about HolMat online with contests, panels, and more in the months to come. Above all: thank you for being part of what makes HolMat so special. We hope you have a safe and healthy rest of 2020 and we can’t wait to see you next year.
