GALAXYCON RETURNS JULY 29 - AUGUST 1, 2021 TO THE RALEIGH CONVENTION CENTER

  • If you have a ticket from last year, that ticket is now valid for the 2021 event. If you do not wish to attend the 2021 event, you may request to move your ticket to our 2022 event by emailing raleigh@galaxycon.com with your request.
  • Tickets will be limited as attendance will be capped at lower than normal numbers. We expect to sell out of most ticket types prior to the start of the event.
  • We will have guests appearing in person and virtually. In-Person guests will participate as usual. Virtual guests will interact with fans at virtual celebrity meet and greet stations and will participate in Q&A’s.
  • Celebrity Q&A’s will include in-person and virtual talent. A virtual pass will be available for people who are unable to attend the physical event.
  • There will be increased sanitation and cleaning protocols implemented. Aisles will be widened to ease crowding. There will be a policy of no physical contact with guests. As well, certain programming tracks will be on hiatus in 2021, including the video game and tabletop gaming rooms.
  • As local, state, and federal guidelines continue to evolve, our plans are subject to change. We will post all announcements and updates on our website and social media pages.
  • In addition to planning for GalaxyCon Raleigh we will continue to host weekly virtual events at www.galaxycon.com

Thank you for your continued support,
Mike Broder
President, GalaxyCon
