• Bravo has officially canceled BravoCon 2021
  • The network said it was out of caution amid the spike in COVID-19 cases
  • Bravo said everyone’s “health and safety” are more important right now

BravoCon 2021 is officially not happening, according to Bravo.

The network announced Monday that it has ultimately decided to scrap this year’s BravoCon out of caution amid the rising cases of COVID-19 transmissions in many parts of the country.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing BravoCon 2021 until next year,” the network, which is home to the “Real Housewives” franchise, said in a statement obtained by Page Six the same day.

Bravo added that while the decision might be disappointing to the fans, it was the right thing to do since the “health and safety” of everyone are their “top priorities” in these trying times. The network shared the same statement on Twitter.

Announced in May, BravoCon 2021 was supposed to be a big gathering of the network’s celebrities with their fans. It was scheduled to be a three-day event in New York City that would run from Oct. 15 to 17, Deadline reported.

The organizers reportedly prepared several activities for the fans, including interactive experiences, live performances and insider panels. Fans of “TopChef,” “Below Deck” and “Vanderpump Rules” were also supposed to be treated to exclusive content and VIP access to their favorite shows, according to the outlet.

The cancellation comes amid the rising cases in transmissions attributed to the delta variant of the coronavirus, which prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to update its safety guidelines and protocols recently. Part of the changes was the CDC’s mandate for people, vaccinated or not, to wear masks indoors, according to Variety.

The network is hopeful that, unlike the previous year’s and this year’s editions, BravoCon 2022 will push through. “We look forward to celebrating BravoCon 2022 together,” Bravo said.

Last year’s iteration of BravoCon was also canceled due to the pandemic. In May, Bravo announced its plan to bring back the event in the fall since the vaccines have already become widely available and the cases were starting to drop. But things quickly changed when the delta variant started spreading in the country.

The first BravoCon was a big hit among fans, with Page Six reporting that just when the 2019 edition of the star-studded gathering was announced to the public, tickets sold out in less than a minute.
