Comic-Con International has announced they are postponing this year’s WonderCon, their annual spring convention in Anaheim, California. This year’s convention was scheduled for April 10-12.
“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,” the organization said on their website. “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.”
They also said no decision has been reached yet about this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, which is still several months away. “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.”
Finally, CCI also runs the Comic-Con Museum in San Diego, which has cancelled several of their local events. “… events currently scheduled for the Comic-Con Museum have been postponed until a later date,” they said in an email. “Refunds for Pop Culture Science will be processed in the coming days.”
