Official Cancellation Announcement for 2020



Dear FantaSci 2020 Attendees,


It is with a very heavy heart that we need to inform you that FantaSci 2020 has been forced to cancel due to the multiple ongoing states of emergency (Federal, State and City) and the Governor’s Executive Order forbidding gatherings of more than 100 people in relation to the Global Pandemic of COVID-19. We believe that restriction is likely to be tightened in the coming days as other locations are limiting gatherings to less than 50 people and instituting curfews.


Due to this unprecedented state of events, we were forced to invoke the Force Majeure clause in our contract. Rather than attempt to reschedule for some time later in this year, we have decided to change FantaSci 2021 to be the Fantasy year that we couldn’t experience this year.


FantaSci 2021 is planned for March 19-21, 2021 in the same location – the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Durham Airport at Research Triangle Park. At this time all passes will be automatically rolled over to FantaSci 2021 this will include all the charity tickets, 4HU and MHI passes.


It is imperative that everyone cancel their hotel reservations unless you plan to stay at the hotel for other reasons.


The Staff and I are terribly sorry for the any inconvenience this may have caused, and we remain committed to making FantaSci an enjoyable experience for everyone.


Joel Lyons and the Staff of FantaSci
