COVID Policy and Registration Reminder

Hi, friends,
We want to get the FriendCon COVID policy out to you as soon as possible so you can make an informed decision about attending this year.  Without further ado, here is what we will be requiring to attend FriendCon 2023:
  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination with the most recent booster no older than September 1, 2022
  • Negative rapid test at time of entry
Masks will be optional this year, but encouraged.  Some folks will mask the whole weekend, and some will not.  Please respect each other and let the admin team know immediately if there are any issues.
We do not come by these decisions lightly; they are the result of weeks of deliberation.  Please note that we will be keeping an eye on transmission levels and we will let you know ASAP if anything needs to be changed.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
A reminder to you that pre-registration is open at https://friendcon.com/register, where you can get a badge for $45 (it goes up to $50 at the door) and this year’s sweet, sweet merch!

EVENT SUBMISSION
If you are interested in running an event/panel/showcase/interpretive dance/bake-off this year, please submit it here: https://friendcon.com/event-submission/

With love,

Your Friends at FriendCon

Updated COVID policies for Friendcon 2022

In regards to our COVID policies and procedures, we’re making some changes this year, trying to keep your safety in mind.

Similar to last year, we will be requiring masks in the convention space, with allowance to take it off momentarily in order to drink from a beverage. In addition, vaccination will be required to attend the convention.

A slight change this year is that no foods will be allowed in the convention space, and no space will be set aside to sit and eat in the convention, there is plenty of seating in the hotel lobby area that can accommodate you.

One new requirement this year is that we will be requiring a negative COVID test prior to attendance of FriendCon.
