With the ongoing storm, SacAnime has addressed those who are concerned about the Winter 2023 event or are thinking of canceling. 

Northern California is being hit by a bomb cyclone with heavy rain and winds. Those planning to attend SacAnime Winter 2023 have been concerned about their safety or the state of the event. Many have been asking what would happen if the event cancels or if they can’t make it.

In response to all these concerns, convention organizers have put out a statement addressing everyone’s questions.

At the time of writing, SacAnime Winter 2023 will continue as scheduled unless stated otherwise by the city of Sacramento. There is also a plan in place should the convention center lose power. Guests who pre-registered but are now concerned about the trip (or got COVID) can use their ticket for the Spring 2023, Summer 2023 or Winter 2024 event. 

You could read their statement here: 

SacAnime Winter 2023 will be moving forward as planned. In order for SacAnime to be cancelled, the City of Sacramento/Convention Center would have to cancel it due to Downtown Sacramento or the Convention Center being flooded, which is very unlikely to happen. The SAFE Credit Union Convention Center is on a separate power grid from the rest of Sacramento and has back up generators in case of a failure. If the convention center does lose power, SacAnime, SacAnime Security and the Convention Center has an emergency plan in place.

If you pre-registered for SacAnime Winter 2023 but can’t attend due to the weather, COVID, etc., you can use your tickets for SacAnime Spring 2023, SacAnime Summer 2023 or SacAnime Winter 2024.
