This petition is to ask Creation Entertainment to host a convention for the TV show 'Supernatural' in Kansas (or Kansas City, Missouri). Fans have been asking for years for a convention in Kansas only to disappointed as we are overlooked for the “better” cities. It’s time to bring Supernatural and the Winchesters home to Kansas.

After talking with one of the main producers for Creation we learned that one of the many things that are preventing this is “Lack of interest” (YEAH RIGHT!). They did say that they are interested in coming if they can get things worked out. So to help overcome this first hurdle we are asking for signatures of people who would attend the convention if it was held in Kansas City.

Yes, we agree Lawrence is the most perfect place to hold an SPN con. Unfortunately they don't have an airport for guests & fans to fly into and have less hotel and venue options. But even in Kansas City it's only a 30 min. drive!

WHO CAN SIGN THIS PETITION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please sign this petition if you would like to attend an SPN con and any ONE (1) of the following applies to you:

  • A) You live within a 4 hour driving distance from Kansas City. (see map here if unsure).
  • B) You live farther than 4 hours but will still travel because it’s in Kansas.

I realize in the past that similar petitions have gone around and have failed. These petitions did not have the driving force and determination that we have now.

As a side note, once you sign you may be prompted to donate money. You DO NOT have to donate, your signature is recorded once you hit submit. Also the money DOES NOT go to us, it goes to Ipetitions.

SIGNING DEADLINE IS MAY 31, 2019.... SO DON'T WAIT!!!
