About Us

We are a group of gamers, sci/fi and fantasy fans who decided we needed a convention closer to home. Our convention features authors, artists, comics, gaming, entertainment, a kid’s track, guests and cosplay.

We are fans of gnomes and know not to fall under the spell of elves. We dream about dice and game tiles and wonder how we will ever make it through the elusive dungeon of our dreams. We know you should check for loot cautiously in any endeavor and look forward to meeting you in March!

Here’s our legal GnomeCon Bylaws that will make your eyes bleed reading it. Unless you are a lawyer and understand legalese. That’s a +3 for language skills for you.

In all Seriousness here is our Official Mission Statement:

GnomeCon, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to education, literacy, and creativity through the spectrum of the science-fiction / fantasy multi-genre culture, hosting yearly conventions and events which highlight these important aspects.

Our Sexual Harassment Policy:

GnomeCon is committed to providing a harassment-free convention experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, body size, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, political background, or fandom.

We do not tolerate harassment of attendees in any form.

This includes, but is not limited to: physical assault, verbal harassment, sexual harassment, stalking, unwanted physical contact, or unwanted advances.

In addition, engaging in any photography where the subject feels they are being stalked, exploited, degraded, or disrespected is also strictly prohibited. While it is reasonable that photographers will be photographing costumers and other parts of the convention, should this photography become harassing or sexual in nature, the photographer may be subject to removal from the event without refund.

As a reminder, applicable laws related to sexual harassment, criminal harassment and sexual assault, as well as standards of normally acceptable behaviour apply at GnomeCon just as they do anywhere else. Actions which violate these laws will be referred to the police and may result in a criminal charge.

Incidents with blatantly sexual speech, acts, simulated acts and/or inappropriate touching or any other actions undertaken by any attendee which in the sole determination of

GnomeCon, its staff and its volunteers detract from the overall experience of other attendees at the event may also result in your removal from GnomeCon without refund.

If you experience an act of harassment, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns related to attendees experience at GnomeCon, please:

1.immediately notify the nearest available GnomeCon staff member or volunteer of the situation; or

  1. if you are unable to find a staff, crew, or volunteer member to assist you, please go directly to our Security Desk located in the lobby.

COSTUME POLICY

GnomeCon reserves the right to reject any costume at any time and for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, the absence of clothing or a costume is not itself a costume and nudity is not allowed at any GnomeCon event.

All costumed attendees are required to have opaque fabric of some type covering the appropriate areas of the body; opaque bodysuits that simulate nudity are not allowed. Anyone wearing a

costume that is too revealing in the sole judgment of

GnomeCon will be asked to leave the event.
