KC Fan Con #31, originally scheduled for July 10, has been canceled. Promoter Craig Klotz said he is turning his attention to the Free State Comicon slated for September 10.

“There was a dealer shortage, and concern that the 4th of July holiday would suck up a lot of fans’ expendable [dollars],” Klotz wrote on Facebook. “I’m sorry. I’m putting all my energy this summer into planning the Lawrence show, which I expect will be huge.”

Klotz promotes several one-day KC Fan Con events each year. The free conventions are held at an Overland Park hotel banquet room and typically feature one creator guest with a small number of dealers. In addition, he also organizes the annual Free State Comicon in Lawrence, Kansas – a much larger show with multiple guests, more dealers, and paid admission.

The 2011 Free State Comicon is scheduled for September 10th. It will be held in Building #21 of the Douglas County Fairgrounds at 2110 Harper Street in Lawrence, Kansas. According to Klotz, the initial guest list will be announced soon.
