PulpFest 2021 Will Begin Accepting Registrations in September

On May 25, 2020, the annual PulpFest was postponed until August 2021.

According to the coronavirus guidelines issued by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mass gatherings of more than 250 people are not recommended. Gatherings of more than ten people from higher-risk populations should be canceled.

Given the substantial risks involved and its overwhelming desire to maintain the health and well-being of their convention’s many supporters, the PulpFest organizing committee voted unanimously to postpone this year’s PulpFest to August 2021.

PulpFest 2021 will take place August 19 – 22, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry in Mars, Pennsylvania. The convention will begin accepting registrations for PulpFest 2021 in September of this year. Additional details will be posted at the same time.
