Anime Pad was invested in attending Wizard World St. Louis. Unfortunately like most conventions during the coronavirus period, it was postponed. We want to be clear it was postponed to 2021 not canceled. This sometimes can mean whether the convention slides tickets over or you can get a refund altogether.
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 status of other scheduled Wizard World conventions in 2020 has not yet been determined; Wizard Entertainment will make the plans for each show as complete facts and data become available.
Communities across North America have supported Wizard events for more than 20 years, 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.
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. The schedule of upcoming sessions is available at www.wizardworldvirtual.com.
The weird thing is that the St. Louis trip was moved to June for 2020. It was a shock and worked better since earlier in the year it would conflict with other bigger conventions and the unreliable St. Louis weather. Wizard World has come out with a tentative date for 2021 and we see that it has been moved back to earlier in the year. The revised dates for the eighth annual St. Louis event at America’s Center are March 12-14, 2021. We’re back to the typical month of March. We’re not sure why a date change could have happened in 2020 and we’re more concerned about the date being moved back to March for 2021. At least they’ll be back though!
