Celebrity Fan Fest 2021 is Cancelled

“Last night at approximately 7:30pm CST, we were formally notified by the talent representatives of Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen that both celebrities were cancelling their appearance at Celebrity Fan Fest due to the “recent spike in COVID cases and the aggressive nature of the Delta variant …..” Owen Wilson also cancelled for unclear reasons. The loss of all three Celebrity Fan Fest headliners forces us to cancel this year’s show. The overwhelming majority of all 2021 Celebrity Fan Fest attendees were linked to those three celebrities and without them attending, fans would not attend. This led to the very tough decision to cancel the show. 

Here is what all fans/purchasers can expect:

  1. All Celebrity Fan Fest purchases of admission tickets and passes, autographs and photo ops will be 100% refunded within 30 days.
  2. Six Flags Fiesta Texas will still grant any Celebrity Fan Fest admission ticket holder access into their park FREE of CHARGE from Friday July 30th through Sunday August 8th.  Please visit the Celebrity Fan Fest table inside the theme park security gate, show your Celebrity Fan Fest admission confirmation email and we will issue your free admission ticket.

We want to thank the thousands of fans that planned to attend this year’s event. It breaks our heart to do this, but it’s the right thing to do for our fans. Thank you for your support and past CFF purchases. Rest comfortable in knowing that we will execute the proper refunds as noted above. We also want to thank the hundreds of staff members and volunteers that worked tirelessly for us to hold the 2021 event. My heart is sad for the vendors, artists and performers who lost out on potentially earning some income after nearly 15 months of no comic cons. For many of them it’s their livelihood and it’s unfortunate that these circumstances has led to this last minute disappointment. It’s too bad that certain people don’t consider the consequences of their actions and how it negatively affects so many people. May the force be with them.
