Schedule of Events

By | Events, Information

After much delay and anticipation, the Staff of Anime Blues is proud to announce the Schedule of events is now published and ready!

Start planning your weekend adventure now and we look forward to having you join us for Anime Blues Con 2018!


As always we’re using Sched which allows you to create your own personal schedule if you create an account and also allows you to save the schedule to your home screen if you’re using a smartphone.

Click on the 3-Dot menu icon right below the time. (I’m using an Android phone, however, I imagine the directions remain roughly the same)

A menu should open up displaying some options for the page and select, “Add to Home screen”

Finished! Assuming you were able to follow along from here an icon should have been added to your Home screen on your phone which will allow you quick access to the Schedule.

View the schedule embedded on our website here, or directly online by visiting,
