In case you missed it, Pensacon released an official statement today about the planned February 2021 event. It points to both plans to be announced for later this year and brighter hopes for the 2022 event.
Read the full announcement below:
After careful consideration and consultation with state and local officials, medical professionals and venue partners, Pensacon is announcing the postponement of its 2021 pop culture convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The safety, security and health of our attendees, guests, exhibitors, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance to us,” said Mike Ensley, founder and CEO of Pensacon. “After discussions with our venue teams, exhibitors, creators, guests and fans, we have decided to postpone. As an additional factor, numerous celebrities must travel from all over, and will not be able to participate due to travel restrictions. As such we do not see a way to move forward that would allow Pensacon to happen safely in February.”
Originally set for Feb. 26-28, Pensacola’s premier pop culture gathering will return later in 2021. Pensacon staff is currently working with all partners to secure new dates, which will be announced as soon as possible.
The postponement of the event allows Pensacon to work diligently to ensure that fans receive a first-class event that is on the level they have come to expect over the past seven years.
“Pensacon is for Pensacola,” Ensley said. “We are continually grateful for the fierce passion and loyalty of our amazing fans, exhibitors, artists and our community. You deserve a celebration worthy of your passion.”
For those who have already purchased tickets for Pensacon 2021, your tickets will automatically roll over to the rescheduled dates. If you should find that you are unable to attend on the rescheduled dates, tickets can be rolled over to Pensacon 2022. As a token of thanks for all of the support, current 2021 ticket holders will receive an exclusive, limited-edition gift.
Special thanks to Pensacola and our community partners for their continued support of Pensacon. It is all involved who make Pensacon such a special convention, one that ranks as a fan and celebrity guest favorite.
