Dear Ventura Toy and Comic Expo Vendors, Artists, Guests, and Attendees:
It is with much regret and a sincerely heavy heart that we inform you that Ventura Toy and Comic Expo 2020 has been postponed. The date, which was originally set for Sunday May 3rd, 2020 is officially re-booked for Sunday May 23rd, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ventura, California. We are so incredibly sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this causes.

We fought postponement for as long as we could, but with the COVID-19 virus in effect, there is too much uncertainty to safely throw the event. With other larger events postponing to Summer and Fall 2020, we felt the safest place for our brand-new, first year event to thrive was next year. We really did want this to be a Spring event, and we’re happy to say that it still is.

Vendors and Artists that registered for the show can either transfer their exhibiting space to May 23rd 2021, or are entitled to a full refund. Please reach out to our promoter via email.

While delayed, we know that next year’s VTCE will be fantastic and exciting. If it takes one more year for it to be the most amazing expo in the Ventura area, then we will wait for Spring fruits to ripen.

Thank you for being awesome.
