As you may be aware, on Thursday Governor Wolf issued an order directing all Montgomery County schools, public spaces, and gathering spaces to be closed for two weeks. Across the state, he also encouraged the cancellation or postponement of any large gatherings, especially with more than 250 attendees. The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! is held in Montgomery County, and our considerably higher attendance mean that we are directly affected by this order. We have been informed that there is a high likelihood of the venue closure being extended past the initial two weeks, to a time that will affect our planned dates.

The safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors, guests, staff and volunteers has always been the highest priority for us. Due to this above-mentioned order and the strong recommendation of our venue, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our show to Labor Day weekend – September 4-6, 2020. We are making this call now in order to give many of our attendees, vendors, and exhibitors a chance to modify or refund their travel plans with the support of the airlines. Below we have more information for those who are affected by this date change.

Attendees – We will be simply changing the dates in our system, so your tickets are valid and will remain so for the new dates of September 4-6th. If you cannot attend on that date, then simply do not come to the show. After the event, we will check for tickets that were not checked in, and all of those tickets will be transferred to our April 2021 event when those tickets go on sale. This is an automated process, and you don’t need to email us or do anything further.

Photo Ops – As we are working hard to secure the same guest list, photo ops will remain valid for the September show. If the guest you wish to see cannot make it, that photo op can be transferred to a new guest op as a credit on your confirmation page.

Exhibitors – Each exhibitor will still have their paid and guaranteed spots at the rescheduled show in September. If for any reason you are unable to exhibit in September, our vendor coordinator will work with you to move your spot forward to the April 2021 show.
We understand the financial impact that this postponement may have on our exhibitors, artists, guests, and other small businesses that rely on shows such as ours. While we deeply regret that this move was necessary, we feel that it is in the best interest of the continued health and safety of all involved parties to do so. Please be patient with us as we work through all the details. We will keep you all updated as we have information to share, and please stay safe and make responsible choices in regards to your health during this time.
