Washington State Summer Con – Canceled!
This this year's Washington State Summer Con WAS going to be held June 20th & 21st in the Washington State Fair and Events Center in Puyallup, WA, but for obvious reasons it will not be happening. They announced that this isn't so much of a cancellation, or a postponement, but a combination for next year. The normal 2 day event is now set to take place NEXT year as part of a huge 3 day weekend according to the facebook page.
We are taking the complete 2-day 2020 Summer Con IN ITS ENTIRETY (guests, celebrities, and attractions) and COMBINING it with what would have been a 2-day show next year in 2021. The result will be a 3-day SUPER Summer Con next year. The dates will be June 18-20, 2021. We are not going to let a virus destroy our fun. This will be TWO FULL Summer Con conventions covering 4-5 buildings and will not simply be the 2020 show postponed until 2021.
