DragCon‘s first priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved and we’ve been actively tracking the situation around the coronavirus. The situation in California (and the world) is rapidly changing, with new information coming out everyday. Unfortunately, there’s no way for anyone to know what the situation will be like in May. Due to that uncertainty, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided that it’s in the best interest of the talent, staff, and attendees to cancel RuPaul’s DragCon L.A. 2020,” the statement reads.

The event plans to return to Los Angeles in 2021 and be “better than ever.”

Many other festivals, conventions and organized events are being canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Find out what else is being put on hold…
