Hello Scarefest family! Unfortunately We come to you today with some truly disappointing news.
We are not going to be able to do the show this year. As we were evaluating if ScareFest 2020 was going to be able to happen safely and looking to see how mandates on crowd sizes and safety protocols would impact our ability to have a good show that we are all used to, we were informed that due to Covid 19 construction on the new convention center has been drastically impacted as of late and the center will not be available for use until early 2021.
We were just informed that the venue received word of the delay in construction and while we had a number of concerns related to covid 19 we honestly didn’t feel not having a home for the show was something that would or could happen.
We are very upset at this outcome, but there is simply no recourse for the situation.
We will offer to roll over all payments and balances to next year and will continue to build on our lineup and making 2021 the best ScareFest yet. However, if you would like to receive a refund we can do that as well. We will miss you all greatly this year, and look forward to an even bigger and better convention next year, in the new state of the art facility and hopefully under better circumstances in the world.
Additionally, I spoke with both the Hilton and the HYATT Regency hotels and they have graciously agreed to roll our 2020 room block contracts over to 2021 and also have offered as a courtesy to fans, to cancel your current reservations for the 2020 show for you, unless contacted by reservation holders by Sept 15th, 2020.
Please advise if you would like a rollover for 2021 show, we will honor your request for refund of your purchase for the next 60 days through November 7, 2021. All other tickets and deposits will be credited for our next Scarefest Show.
Please keep in mind that this process may take some time and we will include more detailed instructions in upcoming post. This will not be through Facebook to request a refund. We will post all refund contact info in the next few days. We were taken by surprise and are looking into the most efficient process for this.
Thank you for being a part of the Scarefest family and we look forward to working with you in the future!
