Dragon Con Cancels its 2020 Convention Due to COVID-19
While it’s not surprising, Dragon Con has officially announced that they are canceling the 2020 convention due to the threat of COVID-19. This is the first time in 34 years that the convention will not be held. The convention was to be held September 3 to September 7 and was expected to attract around 90,000 individuals to downtown Atlanta.
The convention has announced that it will instead hold a virtual live-streamed convention for free which will feature both classic panels and original programming to replace the 2020 convention. More details will be announced in the upcoming weeks about that alternative.
Dragon Con will return in 2021 with a five-day event from Thursday, Sept. 2 through Monday, Sept. 6.
Fans who already purchased memberships for the 2020 convention will be able to exchange them for a 2021 membership or seek a refund.
