Dallas’s Anime Convention ‘A-Kon’ postponed due to Coronavirus Concern

Another popular event has been postponed due to the Coronavirus, it is Dallas’ A-Kon; the company in charge of the Convention released a statement on Social Media, postponing the event to 2021.


Over the last several weeks, we have been carefully monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the potential impact on A-Kon 31. After consulting with healthcare officials, experts, the City of Dallas, our international associates, our partners, and our staff, we have made the difficult decision to postpone A-Kon 31. We’re still working out details with the city, but our new dates will tentatively be June 24th – 27th, 2021.

Ultimately, we feel that we have a responsibility to our attendees, artists, talent, dealers, industry, and staff to do anything that we can to prevent the spread of the virus and to protect our community – especially those that are part of the immunocompromised or at-risk populations.

After reviewing the evaluations provided to us by those experienced in the medical and emergency response fields, we have determined that it isn’t realistic for a fandom convention of our size to maintain the necessary social distancing, hygiene, and quarantine recommendations currently being set forth by the experts.

This was a very difficult decision for us, but we will be pushing forward and expanding plans so that we come back strong in 2021 with an incredible A-Kon 31. We hope you all stay healthy and happy this year so we can see you next year for an amazing event!
