Bad news if you got the perfect costume for GR Comic-Con.. it will have to wait until next year because WOOD TV8 says the 2020 Grand Rapids Comic-Con has been canceled because of COVID-19.

Originally the event was planned for November 13-15th at Devos Place in downtown Grand Rapids, but organizers had to do what a lot of other events have done this year and call it canceled, even though at WOOD TV8 reports, some other large gatherings are still happening. Organizers told the news outlet that they didn’t feel comfortable going ahead,

They said that even as some larger gatherings were being allowed in the state, they “did not feel that it was medically, morally, or fiscally responsible” to hold the event.

The good news is, they already announced dates for next year which is the same weekend as this year, Nov 12-14th, and they say they’re trying to get some smaller events planned and will be releasing those dates and details very soon, according to WOOD TV8.
