A STATEMENT FROM THE ORGANIZERS OF CAPITAL CITY COMIC CON
UPDATED March 13, 2020 – 12:00PM
Statement regarding postponement of Capital City Comic Con 2020.
Over the last three years all of us here at Capital City Comic Con have loved watching our fans, exhibitors, volunteers and guests grow this community event into what it is today. We know the uplifting power a fun and inclusive event holds and look forward to seeing all your smiling faces and incredible cosplay every year.
On behalf of all our organizing partners, Cherry Bomb Toys, Downtown Victoria Business Association and Destination Greater Victoria, it is with great disappointment that we are announcing the postponement of Capital City Comic Con 2020 due to the situation related to COVID-19, or coronavirus.
Capital City Comic Con was scheduled to take place from March 20-22, 2020. We know every attendee eagerly anticipates the Capital City Comic Con but considering recent events, we felt it was important to put safety and peace of mind first. We know this is as disappointing to you as it is to us, but we do believe that this is the right decision.
This is not a decision we’ve made lightly. In addition to the recent COVID-19 developments, on March 9, 2020 the Screen Actors Guild (SAG AFTRA) issued a notice to its members that it would be in their best interest to cease flying for the foreseeable future. We respect and recognize this union body is acting with the safety of its members in mind and as a result some of Capital City Comic Con’s guests have chosen to postpone their travel to Greater Victoria for the time being.
Our team is working diligently with our venue to determine an alternative date in 2020. Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on all events, this process may take a little longer than usual. We are pushing to more information within the next couple of weeks and will continue to update our fans as quickly as possible.
We realize you may have several questions and we hope this communication will provide you with some answers.
- All purchased tickets will be completely transferable to any new dates announced in 2020.
- If you are not able to attend the new dates your tickets will be refundable.
- Any refund requests (for Capital City Comic Con, Nerdlesque or Comic Queens tickets) will be processed through Ticket Rocket and may take up to 10 business days for processing. Please contact them at email@example.com and they will let you know once they’ve initiated your refund.
All of us here at Capital City Comic Con have loved watching our fans, exhibitors, volunteers and guests grow this community event into what it is today.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding,
Capital City Comic Con Enthusiasts Society
