With the pandemic still in full swing and social distancing being mandatory more events are being canceled in 2021. With PAX East now canceled.

PAX Online will take the event’s place until it returns in 2022. With PAX Online being hosted from July 15th-July 18th. PAX South and PAX Unplugged 2021 will proceed as planned from September 3rd-6th and December 10th-12th.

Since we can’t wait until September to reconnect with the wonderful PAX community, PAX Online will return July 15-18. We hope to build on the success of last year’s record-breaking event and also engage with our community in new ways, such as the Indie Showcase that will take place between now and PAX Online. Expect to hear more about these exciting plans soon.
While we hoped PAX East could safely take place, we remained realistic and did not sell any tickets or space to exhibitors to avoid significantly inconveniencing our friends and partners. As we have shown via our actions throughout the pandemic, our utmost concern is the safety of the PAX family — from attendees, exhibitors, and show staff to media and content creators — as well as the local communities that host our celebrations of all things gaming. We will only move forward with a live PAX once we are confident the show will be safe for everyone.

Reedpop and Penny Arcade want to ensure fans they’re taking the pandemic seriously and will follow all governmental guidelines and local laws to guarantee the safety of all participants.
