Star Wars Celebration Has Been Cancelled for 2020


Star Wars Celebration was a Star Wars fan event that was scheduled to take place in Anaheim, CA from August 27th to August 30th this year.

Due to the pandemic it has been cancelled for 2020 and will now happen in 2022 according to the official Twitter account:


The announcement states:

To our Star Wars Celebration Fans and Friends,

As Star Wars Celebration, the health and safety of our fans, attendees, exhibitors, guests and staff is always our number one priority. Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 virus and in speaking with local and state authorities on the latest public health guidelines related to indoor conventions, we have made the decision to cancel Star Wars Celebration for 2020.

While this news is disappointing, we are happy to announce that Star Wars Celebration will return to the Anaheim Convention Center on August 18-21, 2022.

Then they tell attendees to visit their website to learn more about transferring tickets or requesting a refund.

We have that information for you below:

Tickets Transfers and Refunds:

Fans who were planning to attend Star Wars Celebration Anaheim this year may either transfer their current ticket purchase to the new event dates, receive a refund or receive a credit for Star Wars Celebration merchandise. As a token of our appreciation and to thank all Star Wars Celebration 2020 fans who choose to transfer their tickets to the 2022 show, we are excited to offer a free exclusive Star Wars Celebration stormtrooper character pin for all transferred tickets.

The ticket refund and merchandise credit request period will open on Monday, June 22nd and must be completed by August 26th, 2020.
