Policies

If you have any questions about the General rules/policies send us an email at info@kokorokon.com and we’ll make sure you get an answer!

  • Respect your fellow attendees. Don’t do anything that harasses, threatens, or harms other attendees. If you are being harassed, threatened, or harmed, please find a member of the convention staff. See our anti-harassment policy for more details.

  • Wear your badge at all times. Your badge must be visible. If a staff member asks to see your badge or photo ID, you must show it to them. Kokorokon reserves the right to deny entrance to any part of convention space to anyone not wearing a valid convention badge.

  • Keep your kids with you. Attendees under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Parents will be held responsible for any damages caused by their children.

  • Follow the prop and costume rules. See our Prop and Costume Policy for more details.

  • Follow hotel and convention center policies. 

The head of Kokorokon's Safety Department has the final say as to the interpretation of these rules.

Children Attending:

Programming that is considered to have stronger language or material may be marked 13+ or 18+ in the program schedule. All 18+ events require badge and ID checks.

 

Kokorokon cannot accommodate, predict, or take responsibility for the language and behavior of other members, nor will Kokorokon take responsibility for any minors at the event. However, the convention space will become very crowded and it is recommended that an adult accompany all minors at all times.

 

If you should have a problem with a lost child, please contact any security member or ConOps and they will help in any way they can. When registering for a badge on-site or picking up a badge after pre-purchasing online, members under 16 will require a responsible party 18 or older to sign to pick up a badge.

 

Members 16 and older will require a photo ID to pick up a badge.
