WonderCon Anaheim 2020, due to take place on 10th – 12th April at the Anaheim Convention Centre – once and future location of Star Wars Celebration – has been delayed after taking advice from health officials.
No new date has been announced, but for now the show, which brings in over 60,000 fans, will join Emerald City Comic Con as a major postponement in the annual convention calendar. Expect more shows in the States, the UK and around the world to follow the same fate.
“To protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, the California Department of Public Health announced a recommendation that gatherings and events of more than 250 people should either be postponed or cancelled. Comic-Con (organizer of WonderCon) will abide by this recommendation. Therefore WonderCon Anaheim, scheduled for April 10-12, 2020 in Anaheim, California, will be postponed until a later date. We will begin processing refunds in the coming days.
We continue to work closely with officials in San Diego and at this time no decision has been made regarding the rescheduling of Comic-Con slated to take place this summer; July 23-26, 2020. We urge everyone to follow the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health officials.”
