Jump Festa (ジャンプフェスタ Janpu Fesuta?) is an annual party or exposition in Japan, all about anime and manga, sponsored by Shueisha, creators of the various Jump anthologies. The exposition was started in 1999 under the name Jump Festa 2000 (ジャンプフェスタ 2000 Janpu Fesuta 2000?).[1] New movies, manga, games, and merchandise are introduced during this event. The tradition is that of already existing material a special item or episode is produced and presented at the convention to prove the makers are not out of ideas and to experiment. Manga artists of popular current and former Jump series are often on hand, and many of them have panels where they answer questions.

The event also acts as a gaming convention; game designers often debut trailers and new gameplay footage as well as game demos for the public. In the past, Namco Bandai and Square Enix have used the event for such purposes.[citation needed] Although the event is focused around Shōnen Jump, there are often events for many other anime and video game franchises.
