It is with sadness and heavy hearts that we are deciding to cancel HistoriKC Fest 2020. The uncertainty of COVID-19 and numerous cancellations citing concern about the virus have led my wife and I to have many conversations about the best option for you, the convention, and us. I know we just announced several safety precautions but after further contemplation and additional cancellations following those guidelines, a 2021 event makes so much more sense. Also, and most important, moving the convention to 2021 is simply the best way to protect everyone’s health involved
Did you really want to sit around in a mask for 3 days straight? Me neither.
Moving the event to 2021 with more attendees leaves the door open for us to bring an annual historical game convention in Kansas City. A 2020 convention with minimal attendees doesn’t. Overland Park Convention Center has been extremely helpful in working with us over the last several months and continues to be as supportive as possible.
We will return to Overland Park Convention Center July 30 – August 1, 2021.
I want to thank everyone for their support and patience over the last several months. As a thank you to everyone who planned to support our very first convention, anyone who was registered to attend this year’s convention will receive an additional $10 discount on their 2021 registration (whether early bird or normal rates).
If you have made hotel reservations, you will of course need to reach out to the hotel to change/cancel those reservations.
Thank you again for all of you who have remained patient during this time. We can’t wait for the inaugural HistoriKC Fest in 2021.
