With COVID-19 pretty much putting an end to all cons of 2020, Dragon Con has now fallen into the list of conventions that will not happen. Though, as sad as news as that is, there is a bit of sunshine for us. Like some other cons, Dragon Con 2020 will be virtual. Here is the post that was put on the official Facebook page for Dragon Con.
After an exhaustive attempt to consider and uncover every possible option to hosting a safe and much-needed Dragon Con this year, it has become apparent that we cannot, in good faith, move forward with our 2020 event. We are heartbroken to make this announcement, but do so with the support of you, our fans, our partners, the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau Main Office, and City of Atlanta Government. For that, we thank you.
While we aren’t able to welcome you back in person this September, we will be taking our 2020 event virtual this Labor Day weekend with a free to the universe experience. Keep those calendars marked and stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
We know you have questions. You can find the answers at www.dragoncon.org/updates. Please be patient as the website updates.
In the meantime, we just ask our fans to be like our favorite Mandalorian and never take off your mask in public. Stay safe and we will look forward to seeing you in person next year.
This is the (Dragon Con) way.
