The Coronavirus pandemic is claiming large scale events that feature many people gathering together. And this includes just about all conventions. It’s practically impossible to socially distance from other people at conventions. And because of this, the folks from Magic City Con in Birmingham, Alabama have announced that the 2020 convention scheduled for June has been cancelled. Here is their announcement.
We are sad to announce that due to the circumstances that we all find ourselves in with COVID-19 and social distancing, that we have made the difficult decision to postpone Magic City Con 2020 for this year. We know some of you have been affected in many ways due to COVID-19 and the shutdown. Our thoughts are with all of you during these uncertain times.
We sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience with us as we tried to determine the best way to handle hosting an event the size of Magic City Con while remaining mindful of health and travel concerns that many of you expressed. It would simply be too difficult to meet the state and local distancing requirements in our event setting. In the following weeks we will be announcing our Guests who will be able to attend Magic City Con 2021, so please be sure to follow us for those upcoming announcements!
We know this isn’t happy news, however, we know it is the right thing to do during our current circumstances. We are truly grateful to everyone we were able to see and talk with at earlier shows this year while we were promoting MCC2020. We also wish to extend our heart filled thanks to our Vendors, Artists, and Attendees for your continued support!
You put the “Magic” in Magic City Con! Jamie and I along with our team are working on building an AMAZING show for all of you in 2021! We miss you all and we hope that everyone is staying as safe and healthy as possible! Thank you for being a part of our Con family!
Magic City Con 2021 is now scheduled for June 18 – 20, 2021 at the The Hyatt Regency Birmingham – Wynfrey Hotel.
