Kumoricon’s official Twitter account has announced that Kumoricon 2020 is being postponed to November 5-7, 2021. All Kumoricon 2020 memberships will automatically roll over to the 2021 event. Kumoricon 2020 was scheduled to take place on November 6-8, 2020.
Members who cannot attend the 2021 convention can transfer their membership to another person, donate their membership, or request a refund by filling out an Action Request Form before August 16, 2020. Kumoricon will give a Ghost Neko sticker to attendees who allow their memberships to roll over to the next year. Kumoricon will give a “Heart of Gold” Ghost Neko pin to members who donate their membership.
Kumoricon made the decision to postpone the event after Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s statement that large events will “likely still not be safe” by the end of 2020.
