- TwitchCon San Diego that was set to take place in September has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
TwtichCon San Diego has been canceled amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Festival organizers released a statement explaining the decision for the convention which was set to take place in September.
“Due to restrictions on large gatherings and ongoing concerns for the health and safety of our community, the Twitch team and the local San Diego community, we have decided to cancel TwitchCon San Diego this fall. We are gutted that we won’t be able to join all of you in person to connect and show you what we’ve been creating for you over the past year. While we can’t gather in person, we’re exploring ways that we could join forces in an alternate dimension later this year. We’ll keep you posted,” said the statement.
TwitchCon hosts two conventions in San Diego and another in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam convention was canceled first as it was set to take place in May at the peak of closures due to the pandemic.
Attendees who booked hotels through Twitch’s hotel block will not be charged and organizers are looking for ways to being events in the future.
