OMG!Con will not be returning to Owensboro this summer. The annual anime and gaming convention has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement posted to social media, OMG!Con officials said, “No virus is going to get rid of us that easily. While we may be out for this year, OMG!Con 2021 is still very much on the table.”
The 2021 event is slated for June 11-13 at the Owensboro Convention Center.
All pre-registration passes purchased for OMG!Con 2020 will be honored for OMG!Con 2021.
As a general policy, OMG!Con does not offer refunds on tickets.
While there will be no in-person event this year, organizers have decided to do a series of live streams on Twitch and hope to host some video games and possibly tabletop games. They also hope to host some panels as well.
“We know this whole pandemic is hard, and OMG!Con seems like just another victim,” the release stated. “But as Governor Andy Beshear keeps telling us. “We will get through this, we will get through this together.”
