Well, it’s official.
San Diego Comic Con has been cancelled for 2020. It will return July 22-25, 2021.
This is the first time in 50 years, SDCC will not be happening.
Wondercon, which was postponed earlier this year has been rescheduled for March 26-28, 2021.
“Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the organization. “We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy.”
SDCC said that everyone who purchased badges for this year can either request a refund or get their badges transferred to 2021. Additionally, all hotels will be cancelled via on peak and refunded.
Here’s a portion of that statement:
SDCC also announced that individuals who purchased badges for Comic-Con 2020 will have the option to request a refund or transfer their badges to Comic-Con 2021. All 2020 badge holders will receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to request a refund. Exhibitors for Comic-Con 2020 will also have the option to request a refund or transfer their payments to Comic-Con 2021 and will also receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to process their request.

In the next few days onPeak, Comic-Con’s official hotel affiliate, will be canceling all hotel reservations and refunding all deposits made through them. There is no need for anyone who booked through onPeak to take any action, including trying to cancel their reservations online or contacting the company via phone as the process will be handled automatically. Those who booked rooms through onPeak will be notified when refunds have been completed.
