[Convention] Updated 11/19 List of Changes to Events Due to COVID-19

COVID-19 Convention

originally published March 6, 2020

NOTE: As of today, November 19, 2020 this list will not be updated. This was an emergency list created to keep people apprised of the current situations in the convention world. It has been almost a year and few events are being forced to suddenly cancel. To see what the current event status is please go to our Convention List, a link can be found at the top of the page.

From the Editor: It’s important for us at PopCultHQ to keep you updated on current events. As an entertainment media company, our focus is delivering your fandom, whatever that may be. We try to remain an outlet for you to read up on your favorite comic book news, check out the latest cosplay seen at conventions, check out interviews we conduct with creators/celebs, and anything happening in popular culture. As a source which dedicates the majority of our resources in bringing you the latest in comics, cosplay, and conventions, we cannot deny covering a situation that is currently affecting the convention scene, which is the novel cornoavirus (COVID-19).

We understand that many are concerned about potential issues regarding travel plans, conventions, and COVID-19. Whether you’re a guest appearing or a fan looking to attend, the growing concern has motivated us to keep an up-to-date record of changes, cancellations, updates, and rescheduling that conventions may impose for preventative measures.

Please understand it is not in our hearts to invoke fear in anyone, nor inflate the current situation. Our job here, and with this article, is to keep you informed on the latest details from promoters & conventions in a singular location as we receive them. As we get more information regarding individual shows & cosplay events, we will update our Convention List.

Thank you following PopCultHQ. We appreciate the support of each and every one of you. And we want to do what we can to keep you informed so you can be safe.


Please note, these are cosplay friendly conventions and the list was initially based off of our Cosplay Convention List. If you want to see what events are still active I suggest you head over there.

Cancelled next to an event means that the physical event is no longer occurring on that date.
