With sadness and out of concern for safety we are cancelling the Cosplay And Photography Expo scheduled for July 18-19.
It is clear that a significant portion of our previous and potential attendees are concerned about going to any kind of mass gathering until such time as a treatment or vaccine for covid-19 is available — whether or not restrictions on such assemblies have been lifted in advance of C.A.P.E.
Even if that wasn’t clear to us, without knowing if the restrictions will be lifted in time for C.A.P.E. 2020 to happen, it strikes us as irresponsible to continue to promote it. Getting people excited for an event that may not happen because of government restrictions, and may not be safe enough for many people to attend is not doing the right thing.
We will be refunding all tickets purchased in advance, and all fees paid by vendors. Those refunds will go out no later than May 15.
Our plan is to hold C.A.P.E. 2021 in late July of that year. We hope that all of you that were looking forward to C.A.P.E. 2020 will join us then.
Thank you for understanding, and please everyone stay safe.
