IMPORTANT: PCE 2021 POSTPONED
I have been thinking about the following announcement for a while now. I had hopes that things would clear up by the end of November. But, according to the San Bernardino County, they have not, and in fact, has gotten worse since Thanksgiving and has proclaimed that they will be the county with most coronaviruses in California after Christmas.
With public schools being closed back down and rules of another enforced lockdown being set into motion, I feel that the writing is clearly on the walls.
After a few phone calls and a bit of research, it is evident that the State of California will not be open for business by March of 2021. Vendors and guests alike are not willing to chance the idea of getting ill, despite the great lengths we have offered for protection to not only them but everyone in attendance. With that, I concede that this pandemic is stronger than my optimism and mournfully announce that we will postpone JayZoMon's Pop Culture Expo scheduled for March 13, 2021.
We will gather in June of 2021, or after three months of no virus is reported (whichever comes first). Optimistically, we will shoot for a September show, but we will not know for sure until we see what happens in the following months.
While this is undoubtedly a setback, this is not a defeat! We are not giving up, and the one and only comic and pop culture convention/expo for the High Desert will be back, but at this point, we do not know when.
As I close this notice, I want to thank the people who were ready to fight on despite the obstacles in our way. Sincerely hope and pray that I will be able to have you by my side once again when the time is right to drop the break and speed forward to a future where we all are once again free to walk among others without the fear of getting sick or even dying.
Thank you, people, of the High Desert, for the support in our little dream, and welcome you back when it is absolutely safe for everyone to attend PCE 2021!
