Code of Conduct

Badge Swapping:

Badges must worn and visible at all times while in any of the convention designated halls and/or breakout rooms.  Also, please do not steal from us by allowing others to use your convention badge.  If we discover sharing of badges they will be confiscated, and you will be asked to leave the convention and not return.    


Smoking is prohibited in the venue.  If you need to smoke, the venue staff can direct you to the appropriate area.


Live weapons are prohibited at the convention.  Some weapon props are allowed as provided in the costume rules.  Please make sure to have all prop weapons checked for safety measures while attending GrandCon. (See costumes for weapons)


Costumes must be tasteful and cover appropriate areas of the body.  What is illegal outside the convention is illegal at the convention.  We are a family friendly event.  Props should be carried in a way that does not inconvenience or injure other attendees.  Metal weapons, live firearms, or props loaded with high velocity projectiles are prohibited.  Realistic weapon props may be approved or peace-bonded at discretion of the staff.  If you are uncertain, please inquire at the registration desk.

GrandCon is dedicated to providing a safe and harassment-free convention experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of attendees, staff, or hotel personnel in any form. Attendees violating these rules may be expelled from the convention without a refund at the discretion of the convention organizers. 

General Misbehavior:

Please remember that you are in a public venue, and you should treat others and their belongings with respect.  GrandCon reserves the right to eject anyone from the premises, without reimbursement of fees, whose activities endanger the health or well-being of others.
