Event Information

As the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus continues to surge, The University of Kansas Health System has made the difficult decision to postpone the 20th Anniversary of Treads & Threads to next year.

This is the only responsible action we can take to protect the health and safety of our sponsors, guests and vendors. We have already begun to plan our 20th Anniversary for next year – we will make it the best Treads and Threads ever!

Thank you for understanding this difficult decision.
