Houston Clean - August 6, 2020
COVID-19 is still affecting our community, although we remain hopeful that a vaccine or a treatment is coming soon. That’s why we are moving forward with our plans for Comicpalooza 2021, May 21-23, and preparing for additional health and safety measurements. Our operations team is working with a number of partners, including the George R. Brown Convention Center, to ensure best practices are followed.
We have also joined other local events, venues, sports teams, and organizers on a city-wide initiative called Houston Clean that provides standards for health and safety to combat the spread of COVID-19 while community activities resume.

Comicpalooza 2020 Canceled - March 26, 2020
After careful consideration, and with great disappointment, we have decided to cancel Comicpalooza 2020. We held out hope that we could deliver a great event as planned to the fans. We have looked at venue availability on later dates, considered alternative locations, and discussed a modified show for 2020, but the situation is too unpredictable. Although we are hopeful the social distancing measures being taken locally, and throughout the world, will mitigate the threat of COVID-19 well before our original times at the end of May, uncertainty still persists and the health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance. Instead, we will turn our attention to creating a superior Comicpalooza fan experience in 2021, May 21-23.
Additionally, we assessed several options for our attendees and vendors who have already made purchases for this year. We don’t take your trust in us lightly. In lieu of providing options that delay the process we believe the best and swiftest course of action is to refund everyone.
- If you’ve made a purchase, no immediate action is required by you. In the next few days you should receive a confirmation email from Growtix indicating that your refund has been processed. It will take another 7-10 business days for you to receive the money in your accounts. We understand that banks are backlogged and this could take longer than usual, so please be patient.
- If you do not receive your confirmation email in a timely manner or the refund posted to your account, please contact Growtix at firstname.lastname@example.org. Growtix will ensure they’ve taken the appropriate steps and, if necessary, will reach out to their bank on your behalf. If you do not feel like you’re getting the proper response, you can always email us at email@example.com.
We are deeply saddened by this turn of events but are looking forward to next year. Please be safe, stay informed, and make good choices. We’ll see you soon.
