At Star Wars Celebration, the health and safety of our fans, attendees, exhibitors, guests and staff is always our number one priority. Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 virus and in speaking with local and state authorities on the latest public health guidelines related to indoor conventions, we have made the decision to cancel Star Wars Celebration for 2020. While this news is disappointing, we are happy to announce that Star Wars Celebration will return to the Anaheim Convention Center on August 18-21, 2022.

All information about transferring your tickets or requesting a refund can be found at the link below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can’t say that this news surprises me at all considering the continued infiltration of the dreaded Coronavirus. Sure there are areas that are less impacted at this time but its moving along the country and hitting areas where it wasn’t too bad before. Event cancellations are no longer new news for outlets like this one as we’ve already reported how the Comic Con International: San Diego, New York International Auto Show and The Flame Con among many other events have been cancelled for this year or gone virtual. There are likely more cancellations on the horizon in terms of conventions, concerts and other large assemblies so stay tuned. We were not planning on being at this event based on the logistics and financials involved in our properly doing it but perhaps by 2022’s happening all that can be better sorted out because this is something I’d love to participate in. That’s all I have for now my friends and I hope you are remaining safe and following whatever guidelines are put in place by your own regions governing powers that be.
