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 LA 2020.
DragCon LA will return in 2021, better than ever.
We will be working with Eventbrite to issue refunds for existing DragCon LA ticket holders over the next 7 days. You will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite when the refund has been issued.
Thank you for your support. — DragCon LLC and WOW Inc/@RuPaulsDragCon
The cancelation of this year's DragCon LA was not a surprise, after several conventions in various industries cancelled, as early as last month, due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. This is a good move for the organizers, considering talents and celebrities are expected to meet tens of thousands of fans from all over the world. Things could go wrong so quickly.
Now the next question is, are they going to tape RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 grand finale late this spring without a live audience? The Grand Prix in the middle east went on with their tournament without any spectators. Is this going to be case this season? It's almost certain that this will be the case. However, it's nothing new. The finale of the first three seasons of Drag Race didn't have any live audience, and they where all taped in the studio like the rest of the episodes.
