August 14-16, 2020 Cancelled
Sheraton Grand Chicago
Wakandacon is dedicated first and foremost to the health and safety of our attendees, vendors, panelists, and their families. No matter the cost, I absolutely refuse to risk even one life during this pandemic.
With this in mind, I have no choice but to postpone Wakandacon due to COVID-19. Wakandacon is a family event and is heavily attended by at-risk populations. My outlook was different a few months ago, but I currently believe that it will be unsafe to gather in large numbers without herd immunity or a therapeutic.
I hope to revisit an in-person Wakandacon in 2021.
