ViacomCBS Cancels VidCon For 2nd Consecutive Year Due To COVID

ViacomCBS has cancelled its VidCon convention for online creators and fans for the second consecutive year due to the resurgence of COVID-19.

This year’s event was to be held Oct. 22-24 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

“Unfortunately, due to the recent increases in COVID-19 cases and evolving health and safety mandates, we have come to the difficult but right decision to cancel VidCon this October,” VidCon General Manager Jim Louderback said in a statement on the event’s site. “We just can't risk the health and safety of our attendees, creators, speakers, sponsors, and staff — and we want to ensure we provide everyone with the very best VidCon experience.”

The site states that the event has been rescheduled for June 22-25, 2022, also at the Anaheim Convention Center.

All 2021 VidCon ticket orders that do not contain single-day tickets will be automatically transferred to the 2022 event, but holders may also request a full refund up until June 3, 2022. Because the single-day ticket offerings for the 2022 event will be different, those orders will be refunded in full by Sept. 3, 2021, according to the site.
