Because of coronavirus-related concerns, Chicago Alternative Comics Expo ( CAKE ) and CAKE-related activities are being postponed until a proposed date of June 2021.

In a statement, organizers said, "Though the quality of the predictive information about the pandemic spread is lower than we would like, we do not want to pressure our many out-of-town exhibitors and guests to make an unsafe decision."

Organizers are also postponing the CAKE Art Auction fundraiser until later in 2020.

This year's CAKE expo was slated to take place at Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway. In citing its change from the event's usual spot at Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted St., CAKE organizers said that the Armory provided more space but also cited security the Center once hired, adding that the security chief had a documented history with racist violence.
