Awesome Con 2020 is Cancelled with 2021 Taking Place Next May

Awesome Con 2020

It shouldn’t be a surprise but Awesome Con 2020 has announced that the planned convention is officially canceled. The 2020 convention was to take place in May of this year but was rescheduled for December due to COVID. Now, with things still a raging dumpster fire, the convention has decided to put “the health, safety, and well being of our team, customers, partners, family, and friends above all.” Awesome Con has taken place a the Washington, DC convention center each year since it launched.

Attendess with pre-purchased tickets will receive an email offering to transfer their tickets to 2021 or get a refund (excluding service fees). Exhibitors and artists will also receive an email and instructions.

This shouldn’t be a surprise and is the latest convention to cancel, this time with a convenient 4 months notice. That leaves Baltimore Comic Con and New York Comic Con as the last two major conventions scheduled for later this year that have yet to call it. Both are to take place in October.
