The event was due to take place from October 22 to October 24 at Anaheim Convention Center, and there were tickets for attendees to attend panels and events virtually as well.

It is now expected to take place from June 22 to June 25 in Anaheim, Calif.

All ticket holders for the 2021 convention will automatically have their tickets transferred to the 2022 event, but refunds can be requested through June 3, 2022.

β€œThe recent growth of COVID-19 cases β€” which puts our youngest fans at heightened risk β€” coupled with evolving health and safety mandates, restrict us from hosting the inclusive event we all love so much,” organizers said in a statement to THR.

“As a result, we have come to the difficult but right decision to cancel the 11th annual VidCon in Anaheim this October. We look forward to returning to our summer roots next year when we can safely invite everyone to join us in real life.”

One superstar group also revealed that they’re cancelling their tour amid concerns.
