According to this report, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be putting in an appearance at Jump Festa '20, which will be taking place at Makuhari Messe on December 21st and 22nd.

Photo-opportunities with Tom Nook, Timmy & Tommy, K.K. Slider, and Isabelle will be available, much like they were at Nintendo Live 2019 this past weekend.

There's no confirmation that the game will be playable there, yet, though. However, at that point it will only be a few months away from release, so hopefully we'll get some sort of information, whether a demo is available at the event or not.

"Jump Festa '20 is in 2019?"
Well, it's at the very end of it, yes.

Honestly, I wasn't even sure whether to post about the news until I looked up the date for the event - when they said '20, I thought that they meant that it would be taking place in January or February. But nope!

I've heard of this and I've been to Makuhari Messe before, but I had completely forgotten that it existed. And I didn't know ACNH would be there this year! I'm definitely going to try to go.

I guess since it'll be for games coming out in '20? Or like how cars or magazines want to seem current so they put it as a later date.

Also for the comic:

Timmy: I wonder what happened to Tommy since he came to check out the island ahead of time
Tom: He's a dependable kid, I'm sure he's just fine.

Tommy: This island is... no good
Timmy: Tommy!

Tommy: When it's not an island where you can get fish and fruit...
Timmy: Don't try to talk anymore!
Take a break already!

Background: We'll be waiting for you!
Tom: And so like that we've gone through some hardships, but our immigration plans are perfect now!

StarlitGlitch - Thanks so much for the translation! I was wondering if that was the gist of it.

Good luck with attending the event! Here's hoping that the game's actually playable there!

I think it's called Jump Festa 20 because this is the 20th year of it

Some new details have been published about the ACNH representation at Jump Festa '20: https://japanesenintendo.com/2019/12/02/animal-crossing-jump-festa-details/

It sounds pretty similar to the game's promotional presence at Nintendo Live 2019, except with less characters available (only Tom Nook and Timmy & Tommy - no K.K. or Isabelle; I guess that plans changed for the latter two ).

Oddly, there's seemingly nothing suggesting that the game, which is now only a few months from release, will have a playable demo build at the event - only that other games will be playable. I'm starting to wonder if it's going to be delayed again, as a result. Hopefully we'll get an Animal Crossing Direct soon that will assuage that concern.

I hope we get a Direct soon too. Last month was the first November since 2011 without one.

Thank you for the update!

I'm a bit upset, I thought that this would finally be my chance to meet Isabelle.

I'm still going to go though. ^^

I went to Jump Festa! Here's my video everyone.

Any guess what... Isabelle and K.K. were both there! They were just outside of the booth, not inside. But because of that I got to interact with them even more.

I'm going to post this on the main ACNH thread as well since this one is a bit dead haha.

StarlitGlitch - I'm so glad to hear that you got to go - and that you got to meet Isabelle, to boot! I trust that you had a good time?

Yes, it was great! I'm glad that everything worked out.

It really did live up to my expectations. The booth itself felt immersive (I didn't realize before how the employees wear the same shirt that the Nooks do, and they have the same flag you can see Timmy and Tommy holding) and I was impressed by the details they put into everything.
