WonderCon is the latest convention to be postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The convention, which was scheduled to take place in Anaheim on April 10-12, 2020, has been postponed after Governor Gavin Newsom announced that gatherings of more than 250 people should be postponed or cancelled across the state until, at least the end of March.
This statement was given to Deadline by Comic-Con, the organizers of WonderCon:
“To protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, the California Department of Public Health announced a recommendation that gatherings and events of more than 250 people should either be postponed or canceled. Comic-Con (organizer of WonderCon) will abide by this recommendation. Therefore WonderCon Anaheim, scheduled for April 10-12, 2020 in Anaheim, California, will be postponed until a later date. We will begin processing refunds in the coming days.”
At this time no decision has been made about San Diego Comic Con, which is scheduled to take place during this summer on July 23-26, 2020.
