Programming Change for 2021

We are going to be shutting down at night for the first time in our history. To encourage everyone, including staff, to get some rest every night, we are planning on shutting down all of our space between 2am and 9am every night.

These times may change as we fill out our programming schedule.

New COVID Policy for SNAFU Con 2021

Dear con-goers,

We here at SNAFU Con are excitedly working towards our convention Halloween weekend, but in the face of COVID's Delta variant and new state restrictions, we are going to have some new requirements. The health and safety of our attendees and staff has always been of great importance to us, so we've found the safest manner to still hold the con.

All attendees must have proof of full vaccination in order to pick up a badge. Exceptions must be applied for, but will still require a negative test within two days of the convention. Children under the age of 13 are exempted from vaccination but will still require a negative test. Masks are required while at the venue and during all parts of the convention.

Click here for our full COVID-19 guidelines and policy changes.

If these circumstances are too much to properly enjoy the convention, we apologize but given the current health risks at large there is little that can be done about it this year. We're happy to roll over any tickets that won't be used towards next year's event, where we hope to have a more traditional gathering.

In the mean time, stay safe, and we hope to see you soon!

We are currently requiring masks at SNAFU Con 2021, regardless of vaccination status.
