Be sure to become familiar with KPAC's policies prior to attending the event.
Code of Conduct
1. KPAC is a family-friendly event. As such, we ask that all costumes and behavior be appropriate. 2. All props must be checked in with the safety team during entry. No metal weapons are allowed and all guns must have an orange tipped barrel. 3. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated at the convention. Cosplay is not consent! If reported, you will get a warning and will be escorted from the premises if behavior continues. 4. If you find any issues or safety problems, be sure to report it to a volunteer. If we look out for each other, we can all be safe together! 5. Destruction/defacing property is bad; this may result in reprimand, expulsion, or even prosecution. 6. Report stolen or damaged stuff to a volunteer. Don't try to take matters on yourself. 7. Please respect and follow directions of volunteers and staff members. We are there to help everyone have a good time! 8. If it's illegal outside the building, it's illegal inside the building. 9. Only service animals may accompany their handler in accordance with local and federal law. Otherwise, leave your pets at home! 10. Smoking/vaping is allowed outside only. 11. Most importantly, have fun! The best part about the convention is the chance to interact with other fans and have a good time, so be sure to do so!
We reserve the right to:
Ask for valid government-issued identification.
Ask to inspect the contents of bags, backpacks, and purses.

Our event strives to be family-friendly, but we do not provide a child care service. Your kids are your responsibility. Lost children will be presented to local Police for help in finding their parents.
We discourage parents from bringing children without a parental escort and/or a means of location/communication.
Parents will be held responsible for damages done by their minor children.

Confiscated props may be claimed at the end of the convention day by visiting the information booth, after which they will be disposed. You must bring a government-issued photo ID to claim your prop.
