The Chairman of Wonder Festival Executive Committee explained that the event is slowly starting to ramp back up after two years of cancellations, but in doing so, Wonder Festival is returning to its roots as an event for manufactures. He also explained that while they're making the announcement now, it's still the middle of May and the unpredictable nature of COVID-19 make it hard to know what'll happen leading up to the day of the event, but they'll be doing their best.
