Huntington Comic and Toy Convention rescheduled

Event, originally planned for June, moved to Aug. 22-23

HUNTINGTON, West Virginia — The Huntington Comic and Toy Convention, Hun-tington’s first full scale comic convention, has been rescheduled for Aug. 22-23.

Tickets purchased for the previously scheduled dates in June are still valid for the new dates. If patrons are unable to attend the new rescheduled date, their tickets will be valid for the 2021 show.

Tickets are available now at www.huntingtoncomiccon.com. Tickets will also be available at the door based on availability.

Celebrity attendees will be individually confirmed as their schedules allow and will be announced starting in the next few weeks via Facebook and the show’s website.

“We are excited to announce a date further out in the calendar,” Comic Con event producer Jarrod Greer said. “While it is a monumental task to reschedule the event, we were all becoming concerned that the June date was just too premature. The Mountain Health Arena has been great in helping us get a date that we are much more comfortable with! We firmly believe that through everyone’s continued cooper-ation we will be able to give Huntington the event it deserves.”

The event was created from the previous Tri-Con convention, which took place at the arena for the past several years.
