Comic-Con International has announced the dates for San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon in 2022.
The dates were announced in the program for San Diego’s Comic-Con Special Edition, as shown by @SD_Comic_Con on Twitter, and they’re confirmed for Comic-Con International: San Diego July 21-24 and WonderCon April 1-3. San Diego Comic-Con will again be held at the San Diego Convention Center, while WonderCon will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center.
We’ve all known this for months, but CCI released the data and then quietly removed it from their website – but it’s officially official (again). In the coming years #SDCC and #WonderCon Dates 2022: pic.twitter.com/sYmUci1PUN

It appears that these conventions are full-fledged events rather than minor experiences like the Comic-Con Special Edition, but no further details on safety and health protocols were given. The Comic-Con Special Edition takes place on Thanksgiving weekend and is a smaller event that requires either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
The Comic-Con Special Edition was the first in-person convention produced by Comic-Con International since Comic-Con 2019 with the aim of “providing all of the great elements that make Comic-Con such a popular event each year”. CCI also hopes to “generate much-needed revenue not just for the organization, but also for local businesses and the community”.
“Although we were able to move from face-to-face meetings to limited online events, as with many small businesses, the loss of revenue had an acute impact on the company, including reduced working hours and wages for employees on other issues,” David Glanzer, spokesman for the non-profit, said back in March 2021. “Hopefully this event will strengthen our financial reserves and mark a slow return to larger face-to-face meetings in 2022.”
