Booooo.  We are sad to tell you that it has been officially announced that 2020 SDCC has been canceled.  Perhaps it is no surprise to you, but it is still a bummer.  This is the first time in the 50-year history of Comic Con that it has been canceled. If you bought a 2020 badge, you will hear from the organizers in the next week via email; you will be able to either cancel your badge for a refund or transfer it to the 2021 Comic Con.

Organizers decided to cancel following an April 14  press conference by California Governor Gavin Newsom in which he said that “large-scale events that bring in hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of strangers,” are “not in the cards” for the foreseeable future.  Comic-Con brings approximately 130,000 participants to the San Diego area. 

The dates for the 2021 Comic-Con are set for July 22-25, 2021.
