Statement On Covid-19
Of course, our ability to hold the spring show will be controlled by the availability of our venue. Currently the are closed through April 15th. We are monitoring this very closely!
While many are justifiably concerned about event cancellations, Fayetteville Comic Con is, at this moment, moving forward with planning our inaugural spring event, to be held at the Crown Expo Center in Fayetteville, NC,
April 25th and 26th.
Our rationale is as follows: We are 42 days away from our show. That is six weeks. The Crown Expo Center has cancelled events for the next two weeks, but are currently planning to reopen for events shortly thereafter.
If the advice and guidance that is currently being shared by the local, state and national government agencies is followed, and we all “self-quarantine” for two weeks, with schools closed and events cancelled, we will then be 28 days away from our show, or four weeks.
Given two more weeks to see if things are better, or worse, and we have 14 days until our show.
At that point, based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the North Carolina Department of Health and the health authorities in Cumberland County, we will make a go/no go decision for Fayetteville Comic Con, April 25th and 26th.
Until then, we are still planning on bringing you our event! We know that our artists and vendors will greatly appreciate our resolve to hold fast, as, like with many, their incomes are being hit hard by this situation. Consider supporting them by visiting their web-stores or by commissioning a piece of work to pick up at Fayetteville Comic Con. It would go a long way.
A full listing of vendors and artists will be on our new website next week. The best way to stay up to date on any developments is to sign up for our newsletter at www.fayettevillecomiccon.com, by following us on Instagram @ncfayettevillecomiccon, and by liking and following the Fayetteville Comic Con Facebook page.
We will all get through this together. Be safe,
– The Fayetteville Comic Con Team
