The annual Wizard World St. Louis comic-con will be postponed until 2021.

Wizard Entertainment, Inc. announced Thursday that its Wizard World St. Louis convention originally scheduled for June 5-7, 2020 at America’s Center has been postponed due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

The revised dates for the eighth annual St. Louis event at America’s Center are March 12-14, 2021.

Fans who purchased general admission and/or VIP tickets for the original dates may use those for the rescheduled dates. Artists, exhibitors and others associated with the event can expect communication from Wizard Entertainment soon regarding the new dates, the company said.

Additionally, Wizard World announced other entries on its early 2021 calendar: New Orleans, January 8-10; Portland, January 29-31; and Cleveland, February 26-28.

The status of other scheduled Wizard World conventions in 2020 has not yet been determined. Wizard Entertainment said it will make plans for each show as complete facts and data become available.

Communities across North America have supported Wizard events for more than 20 years, and the company said in a news release that Wizard Entertainment’s paramount concern is for everyone’s safety and well-being. 

“Wizard Entertainment looks forward to continuing its pop culture conventions at a time deemed appropriate by public health and government officials, in consultation with other local authorities as necessary,” the company said in the release.

In an exciting new initiative that has gained traction in its own right, Wizard Entertainment invites fans to participate in free Wizard World Virtual Experiences, in which celebrities from favorite TV shows, film franchises and more conduct group video Q&As, available on Twitch, Facebook and YouTube.
