It was the year without a Comic Con: There will be no Comic Con in 2020, marking the Con's first cancellation it its 50 year history.

San Diego Comic Con presents a virtual edition in 2021.

From 2019:

Genre fans of every ilk make the annual pilgrimage down to San Diego for fandom's ultimate party: San Diego Comic Con. The 4-day event celebrates comic books, movies, TV, video games, anime, action figures, and cosplay.

Fans get to rub shoulders with stars and creators, in intimate panel discussions and presentations in giant halls, on the packed exhibit floor and in autograph sessions. Many come dressed in costume, many more take pictures of the Wonder Women, Black Panthers, Star Trek cadets and Incredibles families in their midst. 

Comic Con is now sold out; approximately 125,000 people are expected to attend. (There are many activities in the area outside the Convention Center that do not require badges).

The quick guide gives an overview of the facilities and programming.

Childcare is available on-site through Kiddiecorp. Deadline for pre-registering for childcare is June 17, 2019.

Note:  Much of the fun happens outside the convention center.  While equally crowded, most of these events are free and do not require Comic Con Badges, (though some may have age limits.) One prime example is the Interactive Zone at Petco Park. Info on outside events can be found on the SDCC Unofficial Blog .
