Convention Tuesdays: Dragon Con 2020 Has Gone Virtual

As we know, the Coronavirus pandemic is now out of control in the United States.  As a result, just about all mass gatherings are being cancelled, and that now includes Dragon Con 2020 in Atlanta.  This week, the folks from Dragon Con announced the cancellation of the physical event.

They said:

After an exhaustive attempt to consider and uncover every possible option to hosting a safe and much-needed #DragonCon 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.
