In a necessary decision that has shaken the core of the Southern California Haunt Scene, the team behind Midsummer Scream (MSS) has announced that this year’s convention has been canceled in light of the impact of COVID-19.
As per their statement on their site, plans are already underway with the Long Beach Convention Center for next year’s event. The team has announced that next year’s MSS dates will be July 9-11, 2021. So, mark your calendars.
For those who have already purchased your tickets, do not despair. The team will be automatically transferring the purchase over to next year’s MSS. It is highly encouraged to keep those tickets at the current rate. However, if anyone wants to receive a refund for their ticket, you can visit this page and submit a refund request.

While I know many of us are sad to see the event canceled, please be respectful towards the team during this time as, like many of us who work directly within the convention and event industry, these are turbulent times. These decisions are difficult but necessary as safety continues to be a top priority.
