After much discussion and careful deliberation, we made the difficult decision to cancel the September 2020 convention. Our top priority has always been your health, safety, and wellbeing. With so much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this is the only way to protect all of our annual convention attendees, vendors and speakers. Though this decision was not easy to make, we believe it is the right one. 

As soon as we have dates for the 2021 event, we will post them on the website.


All celebrities, seminars and guest speakers are carried over to 2021, with the stipulation that revisions and changes may be applied later, especially after the first of the year. 


We wanted to let you know of our decision as soon as possible to allow you to make necessary changes to your schedule and travel plans. If you booked a room with the hotel, please contact the hotel to cancel your reservation. Do not assume the hotel will cancel everyone’s reservations automatically.

If you pre-paid for dinner tickets or admission tickets, they are good for 2021. (Tickets from past years have always been honored for future years.) If you prefer a refund, let us know and we will oblige. However, please be aware that while the event is officially non-profit, and the continued increase of expenses could result in ticket prices going up next year so holding onto your tickets may be financially advantageous for next year.


We do plan to have a virtual event on the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention Facebook page on Friday and Saturday, September 25 and 26. This will include Youtube-style videos of celebrity Q&A seminars from past events, live interviews with celebrities (to be announced), vendor displays with photos so you can e-mail or call the vendor to make a purchase, a few slide show seminars, and a few RARE films to watch. We apologize in advance for those who do not have a Facebook account (you can open one within minutes and it is free) but we choose Facebook because the platform to participate and view is so easy even a six-year-old can use it. During the past two months, conventions have attempted a virtual event of their own but complications arose as a result of the complexities of those platforms, some generating less than 100 participants due to poor connections and other impacting factors. With Facebook, we anticipate zero complications. We have over 25,000 followers on Facebook so we anticipate the event to be very active. Obviously, admission to the virtual event will be free. A schedule of events will be provided later through our e-mail newsletter.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Stay safe and enjoy your summer!
