Just got the email tonight...
May 2021 is outright cancelled.
October 2021 is in search of a new venue. Apparently the Merchant Square Mall is not hosting any 2021 events. Which is OK by be as the ventilation in that room is poor in the best of times.
Seems they are hoping to stay in Allentown if they can find a suitable location.
Hopefully they'll do something virtual in May again, we'll have to wait and see how that goes.
Was afraid of that.
Not familiar enough with the area to suggest another venue but I am hoping it moves a little closer to Philadelphia.
Maybe a move down south with help. Birmingham, AL is nice in May. Sections of the city is industrial like Allentown. Harris could find some new hiking trails! Come on! It's a win win!
I'm kinda hoping the new venue they find for Oct is so nice that they move the show there permanently. Every time I come home from the show, I am sick for 3 days. The air in there is just so bad.
Also, on a positive note, if there is a new venue maybe Rittenhouse will start setting up again. The venue was their reasoning for not coming, so if the venue changes, maybe they will start coming again.

That would be fantastic!
Ideal would be a space within the host hotel. I get that Allentown has become the unofficial home of the show, but moving it closer to a more metropolitan area like Philly could only be a good thing.
They can hold it outside under tents in June. Solved it.

I hope it works out the Philly Show is such a great tradition
it would be devastating to see it go away. I have full trust in Roxanne, Marlin and Harris to figure it out.

Sad to see the May 2021 show cancelled but its the right thing to do. Hopefully things get better over the next few months, and there can be a Fall 2021 show
I trust Roxanne, Marlin, and Harris will be able to find a suitable location going forward
I am not surprised to see the May show cancelled. I am not expecting to receive a vaccination before the summer months.
I hope the new location isn't too far from an airport if it is moved from Allentown.

The convention center in Oaks, PA is a much better choice. I’m a Philly native and that’s the best spot outside of the city itself.
