COVID RESPONSE

We look forward to welcoming you back to Planet Comicon Kansas City (PCKC),

August 20-22, 2021.

This event comes with enhanced health, safety and hygiene procedures in place.  Note that any public location where people are present provides an inherent risk of Exposure to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.

In preparing for the return of PCKC in 2021, we, like you, have focused on the most current guidance from National, State and Local health authorities.  We’ve altered many of our previous best-practices and continue making adjustments in order to meet or exceed recommendations regarding a comfortable and confident fan experience. 

Toward that end, we have a mandatory mask rule for ALL attendees, guests, crew members and staff in ALL public spaces.  The only exception is during sit-down dining in designated areas ONLY where safe social distancing is possible.  Masks MUST cover both nose and mouth.  Guests not willing or able to follow this mandate should postpone their visit to PCKC.  Of course, it’s still essential that each fan respect and practice distancing around themselves and all members of their family in all of our spaces.
