It should come as no surprise to anyone that DeCONgestant 5 / Arcana 2020 has been postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic. No dates for DeCONgestant 5 / Arcana 2021 have been considered yet.
This uncertainty should come as no surprise, either. I'd offer a prediction, but my crystal ball has been in the shop since 2001, awaiting parts which have not yet been invented.
We're hoping to have the same Arcanian format of programming and films as we did in 2019.
2019 was a modestly successful start to re-unite Arcanians. Dwayne and I were heartened when many of you who had not known about D4/A2019 until after-the-fact indicated your support and intention to attend in 2020.
The idea is to now hold it in 2021. I say "idea" because the word "plan" just doesn't fit the current reality.
To that point, I ask that you mark your 2021 calendars to check Arcana's or Decongestant 5's websites in July 2021 for updates. Like Arcana, DeCONgestant is usually held around October and pre-registration usually ends sometime in September. As it is a relax-a-con of sorts, the pre-reg rate has only one deadline..
If you pre-registered for the now-cancelled 2020 event, your membership will be held until next year. If you'd prefer a refund, please contact DeCONgestant directly via the address on the Decongestant 5 webpage.
Until next year ...

Programming is not yet set for Arcana 2021, but it will be similar to the below format we followed for the Arcana portion of Programming for DeCONgestant 4/Arcana 2019. There will be other, less structured programming from the D5 folks as well. Film programming has been set but titles not available online due to licensing arrangements.
