GALAXYCON RETURNS TO RALEIGH JULY 29 - AUGUST 1, 2021

This is the announcement you’ve been waiting for and the one we’ve been hoping for. GalaxyCon Raleigh will happen July 29 - Aug 1 at the Raleigh Convention Center.

North Carolina’s Gov. Roy Cooper has stated his intention to allow for larger gatherings this summer, which will allow us to move forward with hosting GalaxyCon Raleigh. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Tickets will be limited as we will be capping attendance at lower than normal numbers. We expect to sell out of most ticket types prior to the start of the event.
  • Masks will be required of all attendees. 
  • Tickets for last year's event are valid for 2021. If you do not wish to attend this year you may request to move your ticket to our 2022 event by emailing raleigh@galaxycon.com with your request.
  • New Tickets will go on sale on Friday May 7 at 12:00pm EST.
  • We will have guests appearing in person and virtually. Guest announcements will begin soon. 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.
  • The aisles will be widened to ease crowding.
  • There will be a policy of no handshakes, no hugs, no high-fives. We ask that all our attendees refrain from physical contact with our guests or other attendees.
  • Due to increased safety concerns, certain programming tracks will be on hiatus in 2021, including video game and tabletop gaming rooms.
  • We will be working with downtown partners to promote after-hours parties and events.
  • Hotel reservation links will be sent to existing ticket holders on Tuesday May 4. Hotel reservation links will be made available to the public on Friday May 7.
  • Exhibitors and Vendors with existing booths and tables will be contacted to reconfirm their 2021 space. New spaces will be made available by invitation to those vendors and exhibitors on our waiting list.
  • Tickets purchased for this event are non-refundable.

Please note that as we move forward, things are subject to change as state and local guidelines are adjusted. 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
