Statement On Covid-19

3/23/2020
To all of our fans, vendors, artists and guests:
First and foremost, we hope you are all safe and healthy, and able to maintain as such through the trying times ahead.
 
Following the announcement by Governor Roy Cooper today (March 23, 2020), the Crown Complex will suspend all operations through May 15th, following executive order.
 
Although we held onto hope for as long as we could, Fayetteville Comic Con’s first Spring Show, scheduled for April 25th and 26th will not be held.
 
However, you are the first to learn that Fayetteville Comic Con will reschedule to June 27th and 28th, so although we won’t have a Spring Show, we are excited (and hopeful) to bring our first Summer Comic Con to the great city of Fayetteville!
 
For our registered vendors and artists:
We are especially heartbroken for our vendors and artists, who rely on shows and events for their
livelihood. In an effort to help, Fayetteville Comic Con will be contacting everyone individually to
determine availability for the new dates. Additionally, we will ask for any links to web stores or other online merchant presence, and we will make our website listing dynamic, in an attempt to drive business your way.
 
To support that, please be patient with us over the next couple days as we reach out to each of you. If you need to discuss your registration, you may reach Keith at (919)607-9199 and/or fayettevillecomiccon.kdg@gmail.com.
 
We look forward to seeing you in June.
Stay safe, stay geeky and stay hopeful!
– The Fayetteville Comic Con Team

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
