This was the last Anime Weekend Atlanta before COVID-19 hit. According to the forums, it is even quite possible that some people that attended had transmitted and caught COVID-19 at AWA 2019.
It was the first Anime Weekend Atlanta to be held around Halloween, and was very special and celebrated. That Thursday night, there were three parties going on at once.
Anime Weekend Atlanta expects AWA 2021 to go off without a hitch, but only time and vaccines will tell.
