Every year since we opened in 2015, the Northern FanCon team works extremely hard to create moments for the thousands of fans that come together in Prince George at our convention. We always aim to create an empowering, inclusive 3 days of excitement where memories are made with friends new and old. It is a space we are proud to say you can be whatever you want. We never ever want to be in a position to compromise this magic as it is something truly profound. We have been closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 virus in Prince George, and, after many many hours of conversation internally and following the guidance of our provincial government, we have decided to postpone Northern FanCon 2020 from May 8-10 to September 25-27.
Our hearts go out to our entire community and the world far and wide – to everyone impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and all of you, the thousands of attendees who look forward to this event each year. Our team was incredibly excited to see you at FanCon in May, however, the safety of the fans, artists, exhibitors, guests and the rest of the community comes first as we hope to see every single one of you for many years to come.
We know that this decision is going to greatly impact many of our individual artists, small businesses and vendors of the show. To those whose businesses and livelihoods are affected by this date change and the other shifts in schedules during this time, our team is committed to doing whatever we can to help. In the meantime, deposits will be shifted to the new dates. If for some reason, the new dates do not work for you, please let us know and we will work with you on refund of your deposit.
To all of our fans who purchased tickets through TicketsNorth, you will be able to exchange them for the new dates. This will need to be processed through the TicketsNorth box office. If for some reason you are unable to attend the new dates, a refund will be processed through the TicketsNorth box office. Due to the volume, we expect you will receive your refund in 60 days. We appreciate your patience and understanding. – The Northern FanCon Team
To all of our Kickstarter pledgers, we especially appreciate your support and patience during this time as we will be re-issuing you the tickets with new dates. We are beyond grateful for your help with making sure Northern FanCon has continued and will still be moving forward this September.
The team of Northern FanCon is 1000% committed to creating a truly special unforgettable convention this September and we hope to see all of you there.
Until then, stay safe, healthy & happy.
