Star Wars Celebration 2022 Will Now Take Place in May

Star Wars Celebration will now return sooner than expected. Although the next big Star Wars fan event isn’t scheduled to happen until 2022, the convention organizers have announced it is moving the dates forward, from August to May.

The next Star Wars Celebration was set to take place from August 18 to 21. But the Anaheim-based event has announced that it can’t wait to get fans together again and will now host the event from May 26 to 29.

“These new dates will provide fans with more incredible offerings to enjoy at Star Wars Celebration!” the organizers wrote on the official website.

Star Wars Celebration is an annual event for all things Star Wars. Typically, there are a few high-key reveals and announcements, along with panels and guest appearances.

The 2020 in-person event was canceled because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Instead of announcing dates for 2021, Star Wars Celebration felt it best to hold off until 2022. Attendees who purchased tickets for the 2020 event had the option to transfer their tickets to the 2022 show.

Similarly, the move into May means some folks who already planned to go to Anaheim in August may have to change their plans. Anyone who already has tickets for the 2022 event will have them transferred to the new dates, and anyone who can no longer attend in May are eligible for a refund.

Ticket refunds must be requested before June 11, 2021, and can be done so at this link.

As the Star Wars Celebration 2022 event is set to be an in-person event, the organizers have announced several health measures including mandatory face coverings, even for cosplayers, temperature screenings, increased sanitation, and physical distancing protocols.

2022 is still a year away and it’s unclear what the state of the pandemic will look like by then. Events taking place in 2021 are still mostly online including E3 and Comic-Con.
