Con on the Cob and COVID-19 – Sad news and new opportunities

Man, global pandemics suck.

As you have probably been alerted through other sources the inevitable has become reality. Con on the Cob 2020 has been postponed until 2021 for obvious reasons. Not only will the county and state health departments not allow gatherings of this magnitude (so our opinions wouldn’t matter even if we didn’t care about your safety, which we do), but we just don’t see smashing a bunch of people together in a hotel for four days to be a wise thing to do given the current circumstances.

It completely sucks. Con on the Cob is the highlight of our year and we had so many incredibly cool things in store. Nonetheless, Con on the Cob – Adventures in the Haunted Amusement Park is NOT CANCELED! It is merely moved back a year. Next year’s show will have the same theme and even more fantastic programs, games, and adventures.

If you are signed up for CotC 2020, either as an attendee, a vendor, or a guest, fear not! Your badges, booths, and COB CRATES will be automatically transferred to next year’s show. We are very sorry, but, in keeping with our stated rules and guidelines, and the current reality we enjoy, refunds are not an option.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Con on the Cob 2021 will take place October 14-17, 2021 at the same venue and will feature the same games, guests, vendors, and events that Cotc 2020 would have.
  • If you have a hotel reservation please call the hotel at (330) 659-6151 to ask them to transfer your reservation to the new date.
  • If you signed up to run or play in a game please be aware we are working on transferring everything exactly as it is to the corresponding days in 2021.
  • We will be doing an online Con OFF the Cob event in November. We are working out the details right now and will let you know as soon as we have things decided.

Thank you so much for your continued support and understanding. We love you all and look forward to seeing you in 2021!
