Flashback Weekend
Chicago Horror Con

has been rescheduled to
July 30-Aug. 1, 2021
at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago in Rosemont, IL

Rescheduled to 2021

This is an extraordinarily difficult decision for us. For the past several months we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation.    We have been working very hard on the convention while hoping for positive developments.    Unfortunately, no such developments have occurred.  In fact, recent news indicates that an indoor 2020 convention will jeopardize the health of everyone attending.    We refuse to risk the health and lives of our celebrities, our guests (that’s you), vendors, and staff for an indoor horror convention. 

Here is our policy for refunds and ticket roll-overs:

WEEKEND PASSES - We will begin refunding all of the Weekend Passes and the Halloween Wagon VIP passes.  We are starting these refunds now.   If you purchased a Weekend Pass or a Halloween Wagon VIP, you do not need to contact us.   Give us some time as we have a VERY large number of Weekend Pass refunds to process.

ULTIMATE PACKAGES – For Ultimates, you may roll-over your 2020 Ultimate purchase to Flashback Weekend 2021 or you may request a refund. If you chose to use your 2020 ticket in 2021, you will be guaranteed an Ultimate. The 2020 Ultimates sold out quickly and we have a long waiting list.   Ultimate Package holders will receive an e-mail with information on how to either request a refund or roll-over your package to 2021.

VENDORS – Vendors will also receive an email which allows you the option of a refund or to roll-over to 2021. Vendor tables sold out in 2020 and have a waiting list. If you are a vendor, an e-mail will be on the way to you.

For our 2021 Celebrity guest line-up, all of the celebrity guests , events, and Horror Auto Museum cars scheduled for 2020 (and many additional celebrity guests as well) will be invited to attend in 2021. Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con July 30 – Aug. 1, 2021 at the beautiful Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago will be amazing and worth the wait!   

2020 Hyatt Regency hotel reservations - If you have hotel room reservations at the Hyatt for the weekend of Flashback 2020, you may cancel them on-line at https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/group-booking/CHIRO/G-FB20 or by calling (800) 233-1234.  On Monday June 29, the hotel will cancel any remaining hotel room reservations for the weekend of Flashback 2020. The discount room block for Flashback Weekend 2021 will available later in July.  We will post when the 2021 room block is available for reservations.
