We are excited to announce that KansasFest 2022 will take place both in-person and remote this summer, July 19-24.
For the in-person event, we will be requiring either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours before your arrival. We will have testing kits available at check in, although it is STRONGLY recommended that you take the test in advance. At this time we anticipate that masks will not be required, although you are welcome to wear one. We are also making several changes to the in-person event to increase safety, including:
- Same price for single and double rooms
- Double rooms will be by request only between attendees, not randomly assigned
- Streaming of the talks in different locations, to encourage social distancing
- The inclusion of virtual talks during the event, to avoid any pressure to attend in person
- Free hand sanitizer and masks in all meeting areas
- Full refund of your registration costs if you test positive for COVID or have related symptoms
Please review our COVID protocols before registering.
The remote KansasFest will take place simultaneously, and will include streaming of all of the in-person and virtual talks, along with plenty of chat rooms on Discord. We are scheduling all talks from the afternoon of Thursday, July 21 through Saturday, July 23.
Order your KansasFest 2022 t-shirt on the official KansasFest t-shirt store. Our vendor prints shirts on demand and will mail them to you beforehand. Please be sure to order well in advance if you plan to wear it at KansasFest. We are not selling or distributing shirts on site.
Pillows, bed linens, and towels are optional and extra. Add this item to your cart if you’d like to purchase a set from us.
You may check-in to your room beginning at noon on Tuesday, and you must check-out by noon on Sunday. We offer optional early arrival at noon on Monday. Add this item to your cart if you’d like to arrive Monday. There are no meals or official activities on Monday.
Note: The in-person registration cost includes a commemorative pin, delivered to you at KansasFest. You do not need to order a separate pin.
Note: If you are registering for yourself and a roommate who will not be attending the conference (spouse/partner/child/friend), you will need to do two separate transactions to ensure that each person is registered properly. The first person should choose “Double room, meals, conference”. On the final checkout screen, that person should then fill in the name of their spouse or child as sharing the room. Once checkout is completed, the second person should start a new order and choose “Double room, meals, no conference (spouse/child)”. On the final checkout screen, the second person should fill in the name of the first person.
Registration closes on July 1.
