Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020 Cancelled
Although full expected, event organisers ReedPop have formally announced the cancellation of Star Wars Celebration 2020, which was scheduled to take place in Anaheim in August of this year. All fans who had already booked tickets and/or hotels (through the convention system) will have received emails with information and instructions about booking cancellations and refunds.
On the positive side, the information shared does include confirmation that the next Celebration will take place in 2022 (August 18-21). No details of the location (although very likely to remain at the Anaheim Convention Center, alternating years with the Disney D23 Expo which also takes place at that venue).
Full announcement from StarWarsCelebration.com:
To our Star Wars Celebration Fans and Friends,
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.
