Another big “geek” event is calling it quits for 2020. Atlanta’s annual Dragon Con is officially canceled this year, according to the official website!
The pop culture convention was set to begin on September 3 and last until September 7. The decision to cancel is due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The announcement promises to take the event virtual. The statement reads “We will be taking Dragon Con 2020 virtual this Labor Day weekend and give our fans the FREE opportunity to enjoy new content, as well as reminisce while catching up on some of the old favorites.”
Anyone who signed up for 2020’s con will have their membership automatically rolled over to the 2021 event. There will even be a pass for the 2020 event and “an exclusive Dragon Con item that will not be released in any other form or fashion” to be sent out in the fall.
Dragon Con joins a laundry list of other similar events having to forego this year’s festivities.
