We look forward to hosting you at DerpyCon 2023! The safety, comfort, and well being of all in attendance at DerpyCon is our number one priority. In order to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all anime, gaming, sci-fi, and comic fans and community members, we will be having the following health and safety policy related to COVID-19.

Agreement to this policy, and all convention policies, is included in your purchase of a membership. This policy, like all others, is subject to change any any time to comply with local, state, or federal health guidelines to help protect the health of our staff, affiliates, and attendees. Please check for updated policies and requirements.

For DerpyCon 2023, masks, vaccines, and negative COVID-19 tests are strongly recommended but not required.

We also ask you to be mindful about coming to the convention healthy. If you feel sick at any time before or during the convention, we recommend staying home or returning home and self-isolating. Potential symptons of COVID-19 include but are not limited to fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

This policy may be altered or updated at any time as we continue monitor the environment surrounding the safety of the health and wellbeing of all in attendance. Any changes will be announced on our social media channels and in our DerpyCon Newsletter.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to or during the event, please feel free to contact Convention Operations through the HelpDesk at
