Anti Harassment Policy: Cosplay is NOT Consent!

Conapalooza enforces a strict “no harassment” policy. We want to bevery proud of the polite behavior our attendees demonstrate and we are sure that you will all act so amazing towards each other. Our worry is those few people that don’t care about everyone else’s good time. This policy applies to everyone present at the convention: attendees, staff, guests, vendors, etc. 

Here are some examples of things that are considered to be harassment and will result in your expulsion and possibly a lifetime ban from Conapalooza. Harassment is anything that makes someone else significantly  uncomfortable; this includes but is not limited to:

  • Taking pictures without permission.

  • Encroaching on personal space and/or boundaries.

  • Physical assault or battery.

  • Unwelcome physical attention.

  • Sustained disruption of panels, signings, and/or other events.

  • Inappropriate touching of anyone at the convention.

  • Touching someone without their permission.

  • Destruction of someone’s costume.

  • Stalking.

  • Intimidation.

  • Bathroom policing.

  • Inappropriate language to any attendees, staff, guests or convention center staff. 

  • Disrespectful or rude behavior.

  • Threats.

If you feel as though you are being harassed or have witnessed harassment, please do not hesitate to tell a staff member immediately! Prompt and immediate action helps us to better solve the problem.

If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the duration of Conapalooza. It is our goal to creative a safe and fun environment for our attendees.
