Spooky Empire Cancels 2020 Events and Announces 2021 Dates .. #SpookyEmpire #HorrorConventions

Spooky Empire Horror Con

Spooky Empire has announced they have made the decision to cancel its two 2020 events, and disclosed its 2021 event dates, as well.

The horror fan convention had already pushed back its Orlando spring event to August, but due to the current COVID-19 situation, organizers have made the hard decision to cancel both it and the big annual convention in Tampa this October.

Anyone who has already purchased a ticket to one of the two conventions can use the tickets on a future event, or request a refund. Spooky will be emailing ticket holders regarding this.

While I’m sad there’s no Spooky Empire for 2020, I feel the organizers have made the right decision for the safety of attendees and guests alike.

And the good news is Spooky Empire has announced dates for its 2021 conventions, so we have something to look forward to:

  • April 30–May 2, 2021 – Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive
  • October 22-24, 2021 – Hyatt Regency Orlando
