HerdCon 2020 canceled

Marshall University’s upcoming pop culture convention, HerdCon, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 14, has been canceled out of an abundance of caution as the number of international and national coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continues to climb.

“After consulting with the university administration and Marshall Health officials, the HerdCon team has decided to cancel the 2020 event,” said Monica Brooks, associate vice president for libraries and online learning at Marshall. “This was a difficult decision. While we have heavy hearts, the health and safety of our participants is our No. 1 priority. I want to extend a big thank you to the HerdCon team and our guests and volunteers who have participated in the planning of this event.”

HerdCon will return March 6, 2021. Vendor registration will be available this summer.


Refunds are being arranged for participating artists, vendors and sponsors. Pre-ordered shirts and merchandise will be shipped to customers. Tickets purchased for the 2020 event will be applied to the March 6, 2021, event. If a refund is preferred, email
